Song Premiere: The Mammals, "Make It True"

February 14, 2018

The Mammals PR 2018 800.jpgThe Mammals' brand new single "Make It True" bursts with harmonies, harmonica, and jangling guitars with hints of the Byrds, Fleet Foxes, and something distinctly "Mammalian." It's the opening track on the band's re-emergent album 'Sunshiner' which comes out on April 20th via Humble Abode Music.

There's a palpable hope on this track, written by banjo/guitar wordsmith Mike Merenda. It's sung as a duet with fiddler/vocalist Ruth Ungar and features the driving energy of Konrad Meissner on drums, Jacob Silver on bass, Ken Maiuri on 12-string and the soaring pedal steel of Charlie Rose. As the chorus says, "We some days sing the blues, some days sing those harmonies too, yeah we do, and we'll one day sing those words that will make it true."



'Sunshiner' is available for PRE-ORDER HERE.

Song Premiere: Cry, Cry, Cry, "Cathedrals"

February 9, 2018

by Elena See, Folk Alley

Cry Cry Cry live sq 500.jpgSometimes you just know when it's time to go home.

And for Richard Shindell, Dar Williams, and Lucy Kaplansky, aka Cry, Cry, Cry, home is where their three voices live together, rising in a perfectly comfortable, warm, and intimate blend. Case in point: the trio's brand-new cover of Jump Little Children's emotion-filled 90s hit, "Cathedrals."

With Dar Williams taking lead vocals, Cry, Cry, Cry creates a melancholy atmosphere of questioning, wandering, and longing, turning the occasionally overly earnest "Cathedrals" into a pensive contemplation on what the concept of "home" really means. It's something these three musicians, no longer at the very beginning of their careers, are perhaps starting to consider.

Cry, Cry, Cry, made folk music history when they first started experimenting with their voices together in 1998. After an eponymous debut and a single tour in 1999, they didn't exactly disband but each member focused on his or her solo career. They'd reunite every once and awhile (mostly privately), bask in the magic of their harmonies, and then trundle off on their separate paths.

Last summer, that all changed. "We were called back into existence by Clearwater [The Clearwater Music Festival in Croton-on-Hudson, New York]," Richard Shindell says. "They floated the idea of a reunion and we thought, 'if not now, then when?'"

That reunion show has led to a whole string of tour dates planned for this spring - check out the list below. Perhaps even more exciting than a tour, though, is the fact that they're recording together for the first time in nearly 20 years. "I feel so lucky to get to be a part of this again," Lucy Kaplansky says. Dar Williams agrees: "When you have a musical bond, it's like siblings. You are always returning to that unspoken language and understanding. I love Richard's and Lucy's voices more than ever."

"New music to come in 2018," according to the trio's management. Whether that means a full album, a newly recorded single released every now and again, or something else entirely is still to-be-determined. But, based on the sneak peek Shindell, Williams, and Kaplansky offer with "Cathedrals," it's going to be well worth the wait.

Premiere: Rod Picott, "Primer Gray" from 'Out Past the Wires'

February 8, 2018

by Elena See, Folk Alley

Rod Picott Out Past the Wires.jpg"You write what you know," Rod Picott says. Simple advice and advice every writer has heard before. But for all its simplicity, it's actually true, and something Picott proves admirably on his new double album, 'Out Past the Wires.' Anyone who chooses to listen (and my advice: choose to listen) gets a peek into something Picott knows really, really well: human nature.

Now nearly into his second decade of songwriting, 'Out Past the Wires' offers Picott a chance to spread his storytelling wings a little bit: he has also written an accompanying book of short fiction to go along with the collection. Each short story is titled after a song on the album, an exercise that's allowed this creative musician and writer to take the characters he creates with his acoustic guitar and gravelly voice and develop them into fully-fleshed out examples of the people we all know and love.

"Primer Gray" is a good example. With images of cars up on blocks, rust and chrome, lacquer and flames, Picott creates a character you've met before: your dad or your grandfather, your brother or son or best friend's uncle. Whomever it is, he's a hardworking man who's trying his best to make a life for himself and his family, a hardworking man who has come to the conclusion, maybe after years of fighting with it, that in our material, greedy world, usually, the important stuff's on the inside: "I'm only worried about what's underneath," Picott sings. "What she looks like don't mean a thing to me."

###

'Out Past the Wires' comes out on March 30th, and is available for pre-order at iTunes and Amazon.com - album and paperback.

Upcoming US & Europe tour dates.



Primer Gray by Rod Picott from 'Out Past the Wires' (Mezcalita Press)

Rod Picott-Primer Gray-Out Past the Wires.pdf

So I been getting the old Pontiac ready for my kid lately. That's a good ride, a Pontiac. Been trying to find the original color even, but the code they give me don't look right. So I'm just gonna shoot a coat of primer for now. If I find that great old Pontiac green someday, I'll paint it up.

My kid? All his friends have those rodded-up Hondas. They sound like damn chainsaws. Drives me crazy. They're fast, yeah, but they got no power, you know? I mean real power. Now that old LeMans has got eight big pistons just banging away under that hood. That's what a car oughta sound like right there. So anyways, like I said, I been gettin' the Pontiac all fixed up for Charles.

Valentine's Day CD Giveaway Contest: David Myles, 'Real Love'

February 6, 2018

david_myles_cover.jpgJuno Award winning, David Myles just released his latest album, 'Real Love' on January 26th, and, in honor of Valentine's Day, he has donated 10 copies of the CD to Folk Alley to giveaway!

Drawing from American roots music,
'Real Love' mixes full-bodied arrangements and dance rhythms with classic rock 'n' roll structures. Myles says, "it's a record I've always wanted to make...a danceable, fun record that harkens back to the early days of rock 'n roll."

The 13-track collection is Myles' tenth album and his second full-length U.S. release. 'Real Love' is a departure from his previous record in that it is fully electric. It features members of his touring trio--Kyle Cunjak on bass and Allan Jeffries on guitar--plus Joshua Van Tassel on drums and additional vocals by Mahalia and Reeny Smith.

Song Premiere: Caitlin Canty, "Motel"

January 31, 2018

by Elena See, Folk Alley

CaitlinCanty_DavidMcClisterPhoto2 500sq Folk Alley Song Premiere Motel.jpgIf you're able to focus on anything other than Caitlin Canty's quiet and compelling voice (hard, I know, but try), it'll be impossible NOT to notice just how much Russ Pahl's pedal steel adds to "Motel."

In fact, once you notice Pahl on "Motel," you start to notice all the other musicians on the new album, 'Motel Bouquet.' Each takes a turn working to add balance and depth to Canty's already thoughtful lyrics and phrasing (helped along at times by Aoife O'Donovan on harmony vocals). Stuart Duncan picks up the fiddle every now and again, Paul Kowert's on bass; it's Jerry Roe on drums and percussion, and producer Noam Pikelny on electric guitar and banjo. A talented ensemble cast, to say the least, and one that showed up to provide support to a musician who takes great advantage of what's being offered to her.

"Releasing this record feels like a sigh after a long haul," Canty says. And that makes a lot of sense, especially when you know it's something she worked on while she was on the move - not only touring around the country in the wake of 2015's 'Reckless Skyline,' but also while she packed up her car and moved from her native Vermont to her new home: Nashville, Tennessee.

The end result of the move? An album to be proud of: "I couldn't be happier with this record - the way it sounds, and the way it went down," Canty says. "Making music with this band made me fall in love with making records again."

That sense of falling in love and feeling content and peaceful is especially obvious in "Motel." It is, Canty notes, "about as direct and sunny as my songs get. I woke up in California feeling truly rested and happy for the first time in a long time."

And it IS a happy song, albeit a quiet one. Of course, without being able to dive into Canty's head and explore her personal inspirations, you can't know exactly what it's all about. But, with lines like "It was love that broke my sorrow/Like the day breaks all night," you can guess that "Motel" just might be about a new love. More than that, it seems to hint toward a love - and a sense of contentment - that's a whole lot stronger than anything that has come before.

'Motel Bouquet' will be released on March 30 via Tone Tree Music and is available for pre-order now - HERE.

Upcoming tour dates.
