Mandolin Orange makes music that WNYC describes as being “laced with bluegrass, country and folk…often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South.” The duo, comprised of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz, have just announced the May 5 release of Such Jubilee, their second studio album for Yep Roc Records.

Asheville this weekend // Vox talks about Blindfaller

What a week! We've been bouncing around the Rockies (thanks for the big nights, Denver and SLC!) and it's crazy to think that we'll be back in NC this weekend. On Friday, we return to The Orange Peel in Asheville, one of our favorite venues. It's been too long--get your tickets here! 

While we were in Seattle last week, we got a chance to sit down with David Roberts at Vox. He just published this great writeup and Q&A on Blindfaller and lots of other alluring topics. Check out the full piece here

"There's a lot of strummy, derivative dreck under the Americana banner. Lots of bands can get the sound - what sets the good ones apart are songs, and Mandolin Orange has superb songs. They are sturdy and indelible, the kind you feel like you've known your whole life the first time you hear them."
