1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. Mount Royal the second full-length album from virtuosic guitar duo Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge is a testament to the visceral power of incredible musicianship and true creative collaboration. Produced by Gabe Witcher one of Eldridges fellow Punch Brothers Mount Royal includes eight originals several reimagined versions of old bluegrass songs and a cover of Eddie Vedders Sleeping By Myself that is as engrossing as it is surprising. The arrangements on the albums twelve mostly instrumental tracks feature complex rollicking guitar lines one would expect from such technically gifted players but these moments are allowed to breathe. That is Lage and Eldridge understand the potency of space in their compositions and the sonic hills and valleys illustrate that greatness often lies in the unexpected. Lages notable jazz background is apparent yet Mount Royal ventures into old-time gospel and bluegrass without ever settling into one genre. The energy between Lage and Eldridge is remarkable and Mount Royal does not fail in conveying the pairs mutual passion for the acoustic guitar and respect for collaboration.
