Not everyone dreams of a MOUNTAIN HOME, which is good, because if they did there’d be no real hope for those of us who actually need one. Of course, many folks who pine for a solitary life amidst the elements find themselves far removed from the requirements to make such a lifestyle immediately possible. That’s where a band like Mountain Home come in. And not just them, but the host of musicians, promoters, publications, venues and enthusiasts that have cropped up over the past ten years or so to champion a musical array that supports an overall cultural reorientation. Besides such crushingly poetic offerings as “The Sparrow,” Mountain Home promulgate an earthen visage and wooden sound capable of bleeding sap into the veins of city dwellers and suburban refugees the world over. Back To The Land works as much as inspiration as actualization, and Mountain Home sing the gospel soundly. Additional Points: JOSHUA performs solo guitar as J EMERY BLATCHLEY. ANONYMOUS performs solo as something other than Anonymous. ILYA performs solo as himself and in the rock outfit THE SHINING PATH (released on Eclipse, Holy Mountain). The second album on this new label founded by GREG WEEKS (ESPERS).
