On The Following Mountain, seasoned folk experimentalist Sam Amidon veers away from the traditional compositions he’s often recorded and towards original music. According to Under The Radar, “The Following Mountain rewards us with the marriage of the two Sam Amidons—the inflection of those old-soul melodies meet the nuances of his [previous band] Popcorn Behavior. He’s made popcorn from folk music. He’s made jazz.
