Mountain Man's Magic Ship
Something truly magical happens when Amelia Meath (from Sylvan Esso), Molly Erin Sarlé and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig are in the same room, huddled around the same mic, breathing and harmonizing together. The three met more than a decade ago at Bennington college, and put out their debut album as Mountain Man back in 2010. We fell in love with it and have waited patiently 8 years since then for the 3 of them to get together for a new record. Mercifully, they've released "Magic Ship". Listen in the player above as Amelia, Molly and Alex share the story of the cross-country friendship road trip that led to their new album, and perform live.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for March 25, 2019 is: bower \BOW-er\ noun 1 : an attractive dwelling or retreat 2 : a lady's private apartment in a medieval hall or castle 3 : a shelter (as in a garden) made with tree boughs or vines twined together : arbor Examples: The couple's rendezvous was a secluded bower in the garden. "In retelling Shakespeare's story of mortal and immortal lovers lost in a bewitched Athenian wood, Ms. Taymor has sought to conjure the sort of Jungian visions that are bred in the fertile fields of sleep. … [S]he transforms bed and bedding into a sylvan, starry wonderland. An immense sheet rises, falls and twists itself to become a confining roof, a vast sky, a writhing forest floor and an amorous bower fit for a queen of the fairies." — Ben Brantley, The New York Times, 4 Nov. 2013 Did you know? Bower derives from Old English būr, meaning "dwelling,"and was originally used of attractive homes or retreats, especially rustic cottages. In the Middle Ages, bower came to refer to a lady's personal hideaway within a medieval castle or hall—that is, her private apartment. The more familiar "arbor" sense combines the pastoral beauty of a rustic retreat with the privacy of a personal apartment. Although its tranquil modern meaning belies it, bower is distantly related to the far more roughshod bowery, which has historically been used as the name of a sleazy district in New York City. The Bowery got its name from a Dutch term for a dwelling or farm that shares a common ancestor with the terms that gave rise to "bower."
