about

The first ever vinyl edition of Dear Nora's 2004 indie folk pop classic, Mountain Rock!

Katy Davidson wrote the songs that appear on Dear Nora's album Mountain Rock during the time of George W. Bush's early presidency, the 9/11 attacks, and the beginning of the Iraq war. She recorded the majority of the songs during winter in rural Arizona at the end of 2003, after returning home from a Dear Nora tour of Sweden. "Hey Ya!" by Outkast had just been released and it was playing everywhere. Overall this album is about bliss and terror, and how interactions with wilderness and humanity can provoke those emotions.

credits

released January 13, 2017

All songs written, performed, and recorded by Katy Davidson, except:
“Departure Song” features Anna Oxygen, Janet Pants, and Ryan Sugarbush.

“You Don’t Love Me” and “Round Table” were written by a ‘90s Connecticut band called American People. The live versions on this album feature Marianna Ritchey, Jake Longstreth, and Dave Longstreth.

This album was recorded mostly during December 2003 in Arizona, in Peggy Davidson’s living room in Cave Creek, and also in Bea Rector’s quonset hut in Catalina. Some songs were recorded in a kitchen in Lower Haight, San Francisco, that same year.

Originally released on compact disc in 2004 by Magic Marker Records (MMR-028)
