New from Mountain Heart

Remember when Mountain Heart was a bluegrass band?
Seriously though, I've been searching for a reason to mention their most recent album, and got it today with news of Mountain Heart's new radio venture with WSM 650. Sounds pretty nifty.
"That Just Happened", which I purchased this month via download, is a pretty wild ride. An EP really, clocking in at 32 minutes over 7 songs, the music steams along, straddling and blurring the lines between rock 'n roll and bluegrass as few other recent projects have- especially the title track. From Little Sadie to Whipping Post all the way to David Allan Coe with some piano for those of you who are looking for traditional, Bruce Hornsby influences in your grass.
It's a lot of fun with a surprise around every corner and it'll have you listening over and over, I predict. Dirt cheap over at eMusic.
