Mount Hudson is an indie music project grounded in the acoustic traditions of American folk music with distinctly modern pop sensibilities and an ever expanding sonic palette. Based out of Brooklyn, NY, Mount Hudson is the main musical vehicle for David Yim.
He released Mount Hudson’s four-track debut EP, Sad and Silly, in 2016. Sad and Silly was a homegrown affair. Yim worked with friends in Manhattan and the Catskills. With the record finally out in the world, Yim was eager to keep the momentum going. He went back to songs he’d demoed years earlier. With a more mature ear, he developed them into pieces that could age with him. In November 2018, Yim will release a new Mount Hudson single, “Write a Book.” With former Converse Rubber Tracks producer and engineer Aaron Bastinelli at the helm, the Mount Hudson team knew that they wanted something bigger and bolder, but with the same warm, roots style that has come to define the Mount Hudson sound.
“Write A Book” is a delightful pop song that flows with ease. The first line of the song is a tad jarring, as it’s impossible not to hear The Band’s “The Weight.” Thankfully, it’s all uphill from there. We look forward to hearing more from Mr. Yim and Mount Hudson.
