In reading about Mountain Man’s exquisite, harmony-rich 2018 album Magic Ship, you might have heard mention that it was the trio’s first album in eight years. But did you ever hear those early songs? “Animal Tracks”—from the first EP and LP, back in 2010—remains a knockout, with perfectly crisscrossing vocals and wild phrasal leaps. Watch the trio perform at on a sunny day in a field at SXSW 2010. See them at Big Ears 2019.
