It's been almost a year-and-a-half, if you believe it, since Mount Righteous first (quite adorably) burst onto the local scene, immediately charming area music fans with its clever, punk-ish, acoustic, marching band-ish and ever-cheerful sound.
Of course, that was just the live show, though.
'Cause, you'll surely recall, we dug on the full-length debut from the band, too, called When The Music Starts--for my money, a top five area release in 2008. Which is why, probably quite predictably, there was something of a heartswell 'round these parts when an email arrived announcing the upcoming release of the collective's next output, a five-song EP called Open Your Mouth.
Though self-recorded by the band this time around, Mount Righteous again handed the mixing duties for this effort over to area studio marvel John Congleton, who (again) produced a fine live-sounding replication of the band's sound. After the jump, a sampling from the new, highly anticipated disc--the fourth track on the album, "Sing to Me, Tiffany," which the band has been kind enough to offer DC9 readers as a free stream and download.
