the old part of town - mabelline & black wind

the old part of town is an americana string band from baltimore, maryland. they have a self titled debut CD due for release soon and sent me a few tracks as a preview.

'mabelline' is sad folk ballad about the emptiness of modern life. poignant accordion drones and mandolin stabs flesh out the sound. 'black wind' has more of a swamp rock feel, with bongos and drums holding the track down and some snaky lead guitar parts. both tunes feature some homespun harmonizing.

pre-order the self titled CD here.
