Love and Money is ultimately an album about family.
The 12 songs that make up Mountain Party’s second full-length album were recorded in the same room where they were written, at home, and in many ways the subject matter and recording environment are inseparable. These songs are folk tunes about lovers, siblings, parents, children, and what families must deal with as individual lives come and go: pain, tension, habits, money, hospitals, funeral homes.
Showcasing a textural sound that highlights the simplicity of folk songs and the lush arrangements and experimentation afforded by the studio, Love and Money is the most fully realized entry in Justin Green’s songwriting career and is a calculated step forward for the Mountain Party project.
Love is of course the one thing we’ve all been told is all we need. But is that really the case? Can love truly keep us together?
