Today, Yonder Mountain String Band releases their first new studio album in two years, LOVE. AIN’T LOVE, is undeniably the Colorado-based progressive bluegrass outfit’s most surprising, creative, and yes, energetic studio excursion to date.
“There are no limits to what we do. We’ll try anything, if it feels good, we’ll try it again.” – Adam Aijala (Guitar, Vocals)
Songs like “Chasing My Tail” and “Alison” are rooted in tradition but as current as tomorrow, animated by electrifying performance, vivid production, and the modernist power that has made Yonder one of the most popular live bands of their generation. Melding sophisticated songcraft, irrepressible spirit, and remarkable instrumental ability, LOVE. AIN’T LOVE is a testament to Yonder Mountain String Band’s organic, dynamic, and intensely personal brand of contemporary bluegrass-fueled Americana.
With its melodic flair, expert technique, and forward-thinking fervor, LOVE. AIN’T LOVE is a strikingly assured and well-crafted manifestation of Yonder’s matchless musical vision. Nearly two decades in, Yonder Mountain String Band is still utterly unto themselves, a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime combo whose inventiveness, versatility, and sheer imagination shows no sign of winding down.
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING!
“Yonder Mountain String Band turns 20 years old next year. The bandmates are kicking off the celebration six months early with the release of this summer’s Love. Ain’t Love, an album rooted in modern bluegrass and punctuated by genre-jumping excursions into world music, reggae and all points in between” – Rolling Stone Country
“Love. Ain’t Love is an expansive statement full of down-home bluegrass stompers (“On Your Dime”), soulful acoustic pop (“Alison”), and even some reggae influences (“Groovin’ Away”). At 20 years deep into their career, Yonder is as youthful, tuneful, and energetic as ever. They’ve survived lineup changes and the rigors of the road to come out the other side as one of the top newgrass ensembles around.” – Premier Guitar
