My partner & I’s favorite voice & personality from Mountain Man, Molly Sarlé, released her debut single on Partisan Records recently and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. The obvious comparisons tap into something like Angel Olsen or Weyes Blood or Hand Habits, but I feel like “Human” exists on its own special plane of being, one that is obviously present in the world of those artists, but honest and real enough that it sets itself apart. Does that make sense? Its songwriting is whimsical, cognizant and affirming. It sets itself apart from the pigeonholing that comes with associations with a humongous act like Sylvan Esso, as well as the comfy hyper-specific sound of Mountain Man. If “Human” hints at something on the horizon, like an album, then it’s very likely poised for greatness.
