CD reviews for Yonder Mountain String Band

Love. Ain't Love CD review - Love. Ain't Love
Yonder Mountain String Band has a preternatural fan following, courtesy of its live touring over two decades. Generally known as a jam-grass band, their record releases have been a mix of original recordings and live event presentations. Following the inevitable arc of a long-running band's narrative, Yonder's lineup has changed in the last couple of years. Erstwhile frontman Jeff Austin left to tour on his own, and Yonder's remaining members, Ben Kaufmann (bass) Adam Aijala »»»
Black Sheep CD review - Black Sheep
Anyone wondering if the 2014 departure of founding member and mandolinist Jeff Austin would alter the successful formula that Yonder Mountain String Band has used since their first album back in 1999 can rest easy after hearing what the new lineup has done with this new studio effort. Touring with the band since Austin's exit, newly minted Yonder members fiddler Allie Krall and mandolinst Jake Joliff make an immediate impact here on several levels. Krall's fiddle may be the best thing »»»
EP 13 CD review - EP 13

Recorded on the road, it's purpose was clarified in a press release that accompanied its release. "We seek out studios to work in while touring," singer/ bassist Ben Kaufmann explained.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lane, Ramsey, Barrett cover their bases – Covers played a far more prominent role than usual at a country show. And instead of what is typically the least course of resistance in recent years of country artists succumbing to their renditions of a rock hit, Chris Lane, Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett played songs that actually were country hits. Interestingly, the youngest of the bunch, Ramsey,... »»»
Concert Review: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
