The Modern Folk -- American Mountain

j moss is doing a really cool thing over at themodernfolk.net In case you haven't checked out the site, moss posts any and all submissions as long as the artists is independent. In other words, he's way less selective than I am but always posts consistently great music. moss makes music of his own, as well. Here's some more of his bedroom folk.


Most of the songs on this album are traditional, though you'd be hard pressed to tell which is which (except for the last track, "Nightmares," which has more of a garage rock feel.) My personal favorite is "The Mountain." While it's not exactly my favorite song to listen to, it's definitely the most interesting on this album: moss combines his fascination with traditional music and minimalist shoegaze to astounding effect. American Mountain is a cool artifact of indie music and the directions Americana music has been expanding into. That is, after all, what moss's blog is all about.
