    Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, out next Friday, September 21, is streaming in full till then as an NPR First Listen. The new album distills eight years of experience since their 2010 debut album, Made the Harbor, of sights seen, pleasures had, feelings hurt, forgiveness extended. "There's also a precision to these songs—both in harmony and duration—that lend them a sense of purpose," writes NPR's Otis Hart. "Magic Ship is most potent when heard in full, from beginning to end, ideally on a back porch or around a smoldering campfire."
