Letter to a (fellow) fan of Of Monsters and Men

Of Monsters and Men letter

March 27, 2013

Do remember where you were when first heard THAT song? You know, the one that sounded just right on the very first listen.

I first heard “Little Talks” by OMAM on a misty morning in March of 2012, while driving through the hills of West Virginia. It was a perfect match of state and musical selection; West Virginia is THE venue for what I call “mountain music”. By that I mean music that is rich, deep, full of harmonies/echoes – things that go well with mountains, trees, woods, Robert Frost poetry and all that.  In short – I LOVED IT!

When I returned home, I searched frantically for the OMAM album (that did not yet exist in North America). 1 year, and 2 (almost 3) Top 20 songs later…it’s here, and I have listened to the WHOLE album. And I like what I’ve heard.  It’s a little Lumineers, a little Housemartins (look ‘em up), and a whole lotta perfect for a mountain drive, or a cool winter’s night with a glass of red.

I hope you enjoy it just as much.
