Through thick and thin, The North Country prevails. This fact bore out time and time again, with this particular again being the addition of Margot MacDonald to their shifting lineup. A favorite in the DC music scene and member of the (unfortunately) now defunct The El Mansouris, MacDonald’s solo music displays not just the power of her voice, but her mastery of vocal loops and effects. She is, to put it mildly, multifaceted.
In fact, the entire ensemble that leader Andrew Grossman has assembled can lay claim to such musical diversity, with most members juggling multiple musical projects (Bal Boheme, Near Northeast, California Accent, and Lotion Princess, just to name a few) outside of their residency in The North Country. They are, with no hyperbole, DC's premier indie-pop supergroup.
