Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A very artful-yet-accessible album with great lyrics, memorable songs
and rich orchestrations. In addition to the songs are a handful of
haunting instrumentals which help to frame the overall work of the
songs to a larger canvas. The music bridges a number of disparate
genres including experimental music, Americana, cabaret, circus
music, Appalachian string music, bluegrass music, old-time music,
Southern Gospel, and funereal music. The understatedly beautiful
cover artwork and illustrations, contained within the 12 page color
booklet, are by Carson Ellis, best known for her work on albums by
The Decemberists.


...the band mixes carnivalesque tunes with rock moments. The rich
and tight orchestrations feature a Morricone-inspired combination of
harmonica, viola, banjo, guitar, tuba, violin, trombone, upright
bass, and drums. --The New Yorker

Boston's circus of malcontents not only has the chops but features a
fallen hellfire preacher/band leader (the captivating Brian
Carpenter) who simultaneously channels Nick Cave and Johnny Cash. --The Village Voice

Boy From Black Mountain is the prettiest darn dark American record in recent memory. --Barry Thompson, Boston Phoenix

Not disappointed in Boy From Black Mountain album. I loved it even more that I thought I would from listening to the samples. It won the best Alt/Country Music Award at the 2009 Independent Music Awards. Enough said!
