tiny mtns is a five-song EP recorded to cassette tape in March 2009 at the Grinding Tapes House in Andover, MA. A significant departure from his previous album, Butterfly Needles, tiny mtns welcomes contributions from Elijah Wyman's North Shore friends for a fully-embellished sound. The songs can be considered his first true integration of the youthful exuberance found on Beautiful Like Words, the ambition of Why We Never Go Swimming, and the earnest politics of Butterfly Needles. Featuring banjo, mountain dulcimer, glockenspiel, autoharp, toy piano, and—for the first time—synthesizer, this release is not to be missed!
The CD release consisted of 250 CDs, each in its own hand-made jacket, crafted with love by Elijah and Rhonda Wyman.
