The Chapel Hill-based Americana band Mipso carries on its musical evolution with the great new album Edges Run. Rolling Stone called Mipso one of “the ten new country artists you need to know,” and the former UNC–Chapel Hill undergrads continue to impress the critics and gain fans.
Edges Run is their tightest team effort yet. “Working so closely forces all of your edges to run up against each other,” says vocalist and fiddle player Libby Rodenbough. The songs remain laden with stunning harmonies, but this latest collaboration yields something moodier, more laid bare—something band members feel they can remain energized about playing again and again.
“Catchy and radiant, moody and meditative, they'll touch you on many different levels” (Michael Bialas, Pop Matters).
Robert Ellis opens.
“Dressed head to heels in a white tuxedo, Robert Ellis has now fully embraced his role as Texas troubadour, putting a little Gram Parsons-style honky-tonk into the bedazzled piano-pop of Elton John”—NPR Music.
