Album Review: Moon Mountain Ramblers, "A Little After Midnight" 

albumreview-aae01d0a887a90b2.jpg

"A Little After Midnight" is the first Moon Mountain Ramblers album since 2010's "Live at the Tower" double album. Just like their live shows, "A Little After Midnight" is a freewheeling and eclectic bit of music that dances between genres without a care in the world.

Every track on the record takes Jenny Wasson's violin, Joe Schulte's guitar and mando, Mai Hyman's guitars and vocals, Dan McClung's stand-up bass and Dale Largent's percussion, and mixes and matches them to genre-defying perfection.

Schulte, the band's mandolinist, guitarist and vocalist says, "It's all about being as non-systematic as possible... as we are live. We try to keep it as diverse as we can with no theme at all. It's really intentional."

From the old-timey bluegrass of "Old Hank's Ghost," to the classic swing of "That's Love," back around to the heartbreak of "Cold Tears," and the jazzy delight of "Get it While It's Hot," there isn't a wasted second on this record.

After listening to the entirety of "A Little After Midnight," one thing is for certain: it was definitely worth the wait.
