Quiet Little Room
Mandolin Orange carries an understanding of tradition and shape it into a thing of beauty. They craft simple songs that go beyond chord progressions and vocal harmonies, leading somehow toward something pure. Using acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and a hand-me-down fiddle, Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz allure with a heart-worn sensibility. Quiet Little Room is the duo's first release (2010). 2011's Haste Make/ Hard Hearted Stanger combines bluegrass, rock and country for lullabies that swoon. Mandolin Orange's critically acclaimed third release, This Side of Jordan (2013), is available on iTunes from Yep Roc Records.
