Silent Old Mtns. (listen)- Saturday night’s Silent Old Mtns. show at NOLA was to a packed crowd that was wild and rowdy. It only makes sense for a band that has been around 8 years to have developed such a staple sound and following in Frederick. The perfect concoction of band members (most of whom have other amazing projects at this point as well)- prove that their longevity strengthens the unit.
Heavenly indie sounds blend with hints of folk – It’s all drenched in occasional percussive partying, emotional “woah-oh” singalongs (cue a gutwrenching scene in a hopeless romatic’s love movie) and strange/spontaneous dialogue that amuses audiences.
An impromptu jam/take on “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” did indeed happen.
Big thanks to Sam Whalen for the shout out on stage. I was honored 🙂
