Like many of the best folk albums of the last decade, From the Mouths is an insular affair with a distinct sense of place. Berube and Beaupre self-recorded and self-produced it in their shared apartment over the course of the last winter, writing their songs separately then fleshing them out together with banjo, accordion, glockenspiel and flute and other instruments they had taught themselves to play - Express Milwaukee
In short, it’s the kind of album that when put on you stop whatever you’re doing and reflect and prepare. It’s the perfect soundtrack for the transition from the excitement of summer to the somberness and beauty of fall. The sway created by the accordion and the tender hold of the gentle plunking banjo will take you on one of the more relaxing listening experiences of recent memory - Hot Lunch Collective
The album’s also available on vinyl and pay-what-you-want download through Listening Party Records and on CD-r through the band itself; there are links to other Bandcamp pages where you can buy both versions of it on our own Bandcamp page for the album. If you’re not convinced this is reeeeeally good, even AOL Music is streaming it on their website along with albums by Pearl Jam, WATERS, Megafaun, Jonathan Wilson (you should REALLY listen to this one, he’s amazing and currently on the road with Wilco), the new Jens Lekman EP, etc etc etccc.
