NC band, Mandolin Orange is now watchhouse!

My first exposure to Mandolin Orange was an early, first year, performance of Mandolin Orange at The ENO festival river stage. It was Andrew’s deep Southern baritone that lured me to the small shade stage in a stand of trees. A mix of lyrically mature, subtle well-crafted songs, kept me close to the stage for the rest of the set. This duo was different from the average blend of Eno performers that year and certainly chronologically younger than the majority.

Adele has a new album (release). Do you think Adele needs any marketing help to promote this release? Rhetorical question, of course. Our policy on the D.C. is to promote musicians we like, love, admire and notice.

I asked auto Alexa to play songs by Paul McCartney and the song, “FourFiveSeconds” blasts from my car’s rear speakers.  What song is this, and why is it associated with Beatle Paul with no discernible vocal presence from Mr. Instantly recognizable? Now after song identification, research conducted, and collaborating artists known, we share this song with Durham Cool readers.   A collaboration between Kanye and McC Paul was perhaps inevitable yet the addition of Rihanna was chosen by the Gods of music.
