Watchhouse - Blindfaller LP (orange vinyl)
As the duo's songwriter, Marlin sharpens his lyrical prowess here, touching on broad themes of growing older and feeling helpless in a world torn by injustice. Sure, the album sounds classic, but it is rooted in the here and now of our daily headlines.
Mandolin Orange - Tides of a Teardrop LP
The duo's fullest, richest, and most personal effort. You can hear the air between them-the taut space of shared understanding, as palpable as a magnetic field, that makes their music sound like two halves of an endlessly completing thought.
