Coming Down The Mountain
What a great band. Chapel Hill’s indie Americana quartet Mipso – Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals) – balances the progressiveness of the Research Triangle with the beauty and conservatism of the rural south. This is a great band that is not afraid of its Appalachian roots and urban education. Their video is an absolutely beautiful travel homage to the mountains. (I feel a connection to this band – roots, kiddies, roots.) Mipso brings a distinctly unique sound- full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes. I love Americana, and Mipso is one of the best practitioners of the genre, and may be the very best. Listen and fall in love.
