    Listen: Mountain Man Performs on NPR's "World Cafe"
    Shervin Lainez

    Mountain Man, which began its first tour in six years on Monday, is on NPR's World Cafe. The trio talks with host Talia Schlanger about its first album in eight years, Magic Ship, and performs "Rang Tang Ring Toon," "Boat," and "Underwear," from the album.

    "Something truly magical happens when Amelia Meath, Molly Erin Sarlé, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig are in the same room, huddled around the same mic, breathing and harmonizing together," says Schlanger. "I feel like there was a big collective exclamation of glee when we found out that Mountain Man was making a new album called Magic Ship. I needed an album like this."

    You can hear the conversation and performance here:

    To pick up a copy of Magic Ship, head to your local independent record store, iTunes, Amazon, the Mountain Man Store, and the Nonesuch Store. Nonesuch Store bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. Magic Ship can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Mountain Man's Magic Ship tour continues at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn tonight and continues with concerts in Cambridge, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Minneapolis, Omaha, Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, culminating with two nights in Saxaphaw, North Carolina. See below for details or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The group also stopped by WFUV in New York City for an FUV Live set of Magic Ship songs. Prepare to be "swept away by their gorgeous harmonies," says host Alisa Ali, as they sing from this "cozy collection of songs." You can hear them do so at wfuv.org. And to hear the band’s take on some of its favorite songs by other artists, check out the new Aquarium Drunkard Lagniappe Session for covers of Kacey Musgraves's "Slow Burn," Neil Young's "Through My Sails," and Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife.”
