Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
I consider this duo one of my great discoveries of the past couple years of attending music festivals. I saw their set two years ago at Festival for the Eno, and I approached Emily Frantz after the show to buy their first EP, an artisanal thing, a self-burned CD-R with a handmade cover. I've been enjoying that one ever since. So I was excited to find Quiet Little Room for sale on Amazon's MP3 store.

The main attraction here is two perfectly matched voices. Their harmonies are tight and beautiful; transcendent. Emily's voice has an astonishing palette of textures: country lead alto; pretty, vibrato-free soprano; and in many cases, just a highlighting backing vocal adding dimension to Andrew Marlin's singing. His voice is absolutely distinctive. He can't be much past 20, but his laconic, weary baritone sounds like it should belong to a dirt farmer who had one bad harvest after another -- and trust me, that's a good thing. His vocals lend sincerity and emotion to the songs, most of which he wrote. Themes are decidedly retro; this record could have played on the radio in 1945 or maybe 1845. It's a paradox how his singing can sound so, what? Reluctant? Weary? But also, paradoxically, rhythmically precise and pitch perfect. Mandolin and fiddle and guitar playing are lovely, but they've wisely decided to let their instruments hang toward the background and let the vocals enjoy center stage in the mix most of the time. The record sounds professionally produced.

The album title is apt: These are quiet little songs that require you to stop and really pay attention. There's not a bad song, and Life On a String and the waltz Night Owl and are particular highlights.

Talent like this won't be denied. I am positive the next release will be from Nonesuch or Rounder or some Music Row label. Go for this one. If you like country/roots/folk/bluegrass, it's money well spent. I promise. Buy it now.

If you love Folk Music, Real Country (not pop country), Blue Grass, well played Acoustic Instrumentation, or just love good music from any genre, then you owe it to yourself to pick up this musical gem. While I would not consider myself a die hard "fan" of any of the above genres, I just love this album! Beautifully written and arranged, this CD will not disappoint.

Folks, there is simply no better acoustic music going out there today than Mandolin Orange. Their musicianship and songwriting is impeccable, and their sound is totally and completely engaging. I honestly have not heard anyone since Gillian Welch and David Rawlings that has taken a traditional sound and made it very contemporary without being sucked up by Nashville commercialism. Frankly, right now the only musician/singer/songwriters out there who match up with Welch and Rawlings is Mandolin Orange (although I should mention Shovels and Rope, and Trampled By Turtles--also great acoustic sounds). For those of you who may be into Welch and Rawlings, but are not familiar with Mandolin Orange, you'll find MO to be the "peaceful" complement to Welch and Rawlings. To the same extent that Welch and Rawlings drive their sound, Mandolin Orange does so in a more laid back, but equally powerful, way. Do yourself a hugh favor--if you've never heard Mandolin Orange, listen to them. You will find it almost impossible to stop listening. I get to see them for the first time here in Seattle on Thursday night. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

I only heard of this band from a story on NPR...thoroughly enjoyable, music that is simple but authentic and soulful. Looking forward to hearing them live sometime, and exploring more of their other work.

The Winterlings played The Blue Plate Special with Mandolin Orange and some very big names...and yet, Mandolin Orange wowed us all with their humble majesty and river deep harmonies. It was an honor to play with them. We have played with Grammy Winners and other folk "superstars" yet Mandolin Orange wove more poetry into song than any. Life on A String is our favorite track on this album...but all the songs are stunning.
