Album Review
The acoustic, semi-folk sounds that flow from their newest record are soft, delicate, and beautiful, not unlike the lovely orange blossom. After meeting last year, Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin got together as Mandolin Orange to create a seven song, self-titled EP. It was good, but Quiet Little Room shows how brightly Mandolin Orange can shine.
Frantz and Marlin share vocal duties and just about everything else on the record, having recorded and produced Quiet Little Room in its entirety themselves. "Modern Man" will definitely pique your interest with its relaxed, swinging tempo and Marlin's ruminations on a Boo Radley-esque figure who can't bring himself to face reality.
Quiet Little Room is an example of a truly fantastic first album. There isn't a single song that falls below the level of pretty damn good. Marlin is an excellent writer, and both he and Frantz are multi-talented instrumentalists, switching around on fiddle, guitar, drums and, of course, mandolin. Together they are a lean, mean, music-making machine that cranks out great songs. It's difficult to comment on which are the best, simply because they're all interesting in their own way.
