In his preview of Paul Simon's stint in town--tonight's show commemorating KMTT The Mountain's two decades on air--The Seattle Times' Paul de Barros succinctly captures the Seattle sound's transformation toward the Mountain's adult-contemporary fare:

The Mountain officially characterizes its format as "acoustic, electric, classic, eclectic" -- but mellow rock is close to the mark. Such middle-of-the-road fare traditionally has been scorned by young, cutting-edge Seattleites, but, ironically, millenials recently have embraced a species of Americana that sounds suspiciously like the music their parents listened to. Fleet Foxes, The Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers all air on The Mountain, and, not surprisingly, they fit right in.

Exactly.
