News & Reviews

  • Daughter of Swords, a.k.a. Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, releases her debut album, Dawnbreaker, on June 28, 2019, via Nonesuch Records (Bella Union in Europe). Co-produced with Sylvan Esso's Nick Sanborn, the album crackles with country swagger and a sparkling pop warmth. Pre-order in the Nonesuch Store to download the title track, a video for which can be seen here, and "Gem" now and get an exclusive, limited-edition print created and signed by Sauser-Monnig. NPR Music, which premiered the "Dawnbreaker" video, called the track "a soft swoon of a song that goes down like a cup of hot cocoa laced with CBD oil."

  • The three members of Mountain Man—Molly Erin Sarlé, Amelia Meath, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, all Bennington College alums—will give their alma mater's commencement address on May 31; the event will be livestreamed. "Bennington equipped each of us with the tools necessary to translate vision into reality," says Sauser-Monnig. "When institutional guardrails are gone, the collaborative bonds you form with similarly interested people become the new touchstones of the creative work of living, and ideally support and inspire you in that iterative process. We're looking forward to being present in sending off another class of Bennington students with a conversation on the nature of collaboration."
