Mountain Time is a project of Chris Simpson of Mineral and The Gloria Record. As with many solo-ish projects, this one goes a little folkier than Simpson's other projects. "Meet the Kid" is the latest single, and it's solidly a folk rock song. There isn't much of Mineral's emo sound on this one. "Meet the Kid" is a little ramblin', but it rocks just a little too hard to truly be that kind of folk song. It's a gorgeous, lush, and heartfelt song that includes some interesting little flourishes you don't normally get in the world of folk rock or even indie folk.
You can listen to "Meet the Kid" below. The song is available as a single via Spartan Records with a full length coming in 2023. For more on Mountain Time, check out the artist's website.
