“The Day Calls Out for You” got some praise in the latest issue of Shindig!. Feelin’ great about it. Shindig! is one of our favorite UK mags.
“New Haven, Connecticut’s Mountain Movers were started by singer/songwriter/ guitarist Dan Greene along with bassist Rick Omonte to record some of the hundreds of Greene’s catchy, captivating compositions. This is their third album project, the first on their own label, and finds the talented duo augmented solely by heady-toned lead guitarist Joey Maddalena and drummer John Miller on 10 tracks of contemplative alt-country rock. Unlike their earlier two albums that featured piano and horn textures, this effort is guitar driven and sounds more elemental musically. Favourites among the 10 tracks are the Gram Parsons-influenced but too brief ‘We Were Free’, which focuses on a high desert motel room out-of-body experience; an anthem-like, reflective ‘Love Is The Way’ (sounds like a lost Beatles song); the bluesy, hangover-heavy ‘The Day Calls Out For You’ and the effervescent, foggy-weathered ‘We’re Going To The Lake’.
