A few years back, music journalist (and, full disclosure personal acquaintance) Liz Pelly went on tour with Massachusetts band Quilt and kept a diary about the experience, a series that made me think about how well-suited Quilt's meandering, harmony-laden folk would be for a cross-country trek. Fittingly, their new video for their song "Mary Mountain," is composed of timeless-looking footage shot by documentarian Laura-Lynn Petrick while the four-piece was traveling through the American Southwest, so watch the video above, and scroll down to live vicariously through some still images that Petrick took of the band throughout the course of the trip. Quilt's latest album, Held In Splendor, is out now on Mexican Summer.
