Sydney Festival has done it again. Whilst all Sydney-siders are no doubt euphoric about the imminent arrival of Sufjan Stevens and Owen Pallett, the festival programmers aren’t just big-name hunters. Little known American three piece Mountain Man are a fantastic snare for the festival. Playing a couple of shows in The Speigel Tent, you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss these gals. Their feminine indie-folk blend has got heads around the world turning; in fact as soon as they leave Australia they will be touring America with The Decemberists. Fans in Melbourne will be pleased to know that they will be playing shows in their city too. Unfortunately, the rest of the country misses out. All the dates are listed below.

Mountain Man’s album “Made The Harbour” is available through their Bandcamp page or from Partisan Records. Personally, I recommend heading to the Partisan Records website and also pre-ordering Middle Brother’s debut release (released March 1st), as well as Dolorean’s new release “The Unfazed” (released 18th January with bonus EP for pre-order) and basically anything from Deer Tick’s back catalogue while you’re at it. This record company knows talent when they see it, and their folk/Americana focus just makes it easy. Everything is available on vinyl too, for the purists.

13th January – Sydney Festival- Speigeltent, Sydney, NSW
14th January – Sydney Festival- Speigeltent, Sydney, NSW
15th January – The Toff in Town (w/Wet Wings), Melbourne, VIC
17th January – Rooftop Bar, Melbourne, VIC
