Mile Marker: Matthew and the Atlas

We first saw Matthew and the Atlas in a small, dark room on 6th Street during this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Tex. — where they silenced an otherwise loud bar. We saw them a few months later at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, playing to a similarly sated crowd on a sunny afternoon in Town Park. This modest British quintet spent the early part of summer touring with Mumford & Sons in large-scale venues, though you can’t really appreciate the intricacies of their folk until you hear it up close and personal. Listen to “Animal Bones,” with a harmonica part that recalls the beauty of Ryan Adams’ “Come Pick Me Up.” Stream and download the full session below, it’s yours for the taking.
