Chapel Hill is home for the Americana group Mipso, proud parents of their fourth LP, Coming Down The Mountain, which came out earlier this year. Their sound is grounded in traditional roots music, mandolins and all, but they are similar in taste to a modern alt-country band. Celebrating the record, No Depression said, “Mipso will corner the market in a new genre. Something like progressive-Americana or Roots-Progressive.”
On April 7th, acclaimed Chapel Hill quartet Mipso released their highly anticipated new album, Coming Down The Mountain, to rave reviews. Coming Down The Mountain is the band’s fourth album release, and follows up their critically lauded Old Time Reverie (2015). After a year and a half of intense touring following their 2015 release, Mipso returned to their home state to write and record. Huddling in a friend’s barn on land usually used for growing garlic and training dogs, they collected their ideas, shared influences, and discussed thoughts on what would eventually become Coming Down The Mountain. The album’s ten songs find Mipso exploring the ideas of our changing relationship to the idea of home, and about being pushed or pulled by forces bigger than us. Produced by Brad Cook (Megafaun), the music on Coming Down The Mountain is full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes that impart intimacy.
