IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD them before, this is to introduce you to Mandolin Orange. Hailing from the backwoods of North Carolina, Andrew Marlin (guitar and mandolin) and Emily Frantz (violin and guitar) offer yet more evidence of the growing strength of the Americana genre. The hugely talented duo sing about the past and present of the American South with that bitter-sweet mixture of longing and fulfilment that characterises so many of the genre's folk, bluegrass and alt-country blendings. Enjoy.
