Following their critically acclaimed debut record, 2013's Dark Holler Pop, Mipso released Old Time Reverie in Fall 2015 to rave reviews from critics and fans alike. The record shot up the Billboard charts, where it landed at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and in the Top 25 of the Billboard Heatseakers Chart. With songwriting hailed as "smartly written, hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular" (Acoustic Guitar), Mipso's Old Time Reverie was named among the "Best Records of the Year" by The Guardian - for the band's "aptitude for stunning harmonies" and for its " lush and moving songs that feel as fresh as a warm spring rain."
With over 400 shows under their belt so far, and the permanent addition of band mate Libby Rodenbough, Old Time Reverie is a reflection of Mipso's musical and personal growth. Their gripping, mature sophomore release finds the quartet expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition. Influenced by the contradiction of their progressive home of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and the surrounding rural southern landscapes, Old Time Reverie dips in, explores and mixes the complexities of traditional bluegrass with modern instrumentation and smart pop melodies. The result is an intoxicating, distinctly unique blend of modern day Americana.
