INDIE STORE EXCLUSIVE CLEAR BLUE VINYL LP.
"Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz - who over the past decade have achieved grassroots success as Mandolin Orange, going from coffee shop performers to festival headliners -announce that they are now called Watchhouse and are set to release their self-titled album. Watchhouse's self-titled album is the first under their new name, and is co-produced by Josh Kaufman, who has produced records for The National and Bonny Light Horseman, and also played on Taylor Swift’s folklore and evermore. The album represents a seamless reinvention as a band at the regenerative edges of subtly experimental folk-rock. Challenging as they are charming, and an inspired search for personal and political goodness, these nine songs offer welcome lessons about what any of us might become when the night begins to break. The first single "Better Way" pairs their own honest songcraft with bold, otherworldly sonic explorations that signify a new sense of confidence and ambition for the band."
