Mandolin Orange’s rise to prominence on the crowded Americana scene has been as quiet and steady as its music. The Chapel Hill, NC duo—comprised of singers and multi-instrumentalists Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin—self-released a handful of early gems before Yep Roc took notice and put out the band’s 2013 LP, This Side of Jordan. This year, Mandolin Orange returned with a patient, lovely follow-up, Such Jubilee. It’s one of the best folk records of 2015, all but guaranteed to tide Gillian Welch fans over until that songwriter’s return. Catch Mandolin Orange at The Foundry Thursday, when they’ll share a bill with fellow Cackalack singer-songwriter Skylar Gudasz.
