The Blues, the Moonlight, and a Splash of Mexican Tequila

Yonder Mountain String Band released Love. Ain’t Love via Frog Pad Records & Thirty Tigers on June 23.

The album has 13 songs with a cover of ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ originally written by King Harvest. Their re-edition of that track is delightful and jovial.

Allie Kral showcases her talent on ‘Chasing My Tail’ with her skills on the violin/fiddle. Dave Johnston signs on the track with his deep, rugged voice.

Adam Aijala, guitarist and vocalist, shared insight on the creative process with Love. Ain’t Love.

“There are no limits to what we do.  We’ll try anything, if it feels good, we’ll try it again.” – Adam Aijala 

The album has a bittersweet tone to some of the tracks. Along with the title Love. Ain’t Love, the band dives into the blues within their style of bluegrass music.

‘Groovin’ Away’ creates a tone that feels similar to their tours to Mexico and the Caribbean. The band will be performing with the Strings & Sol Festival this December.

Preview and stream the two tracks ‘Alison’ and ‘Bad Taste’ on YouTube. Connect with the different streaming services to experience Love. Ain’t Love by Yonder Mountain String Band.
