Hailed by No Depression as “one of the most talented acts making music today,” North Carolina-based duo Mandolin Orange—Emily Frantz (fiddle/vocals) and Andrew Marlin (mandolin/vocals)—announce spring tour dates in support of their critically acclaimed album, Blindfaller. The tour includes notable appearances at Merlefest, Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, Forecastle, and Pickathon. A full list of dates can be found below.
The duo’s “mesmerizing” (Wild Honey Pie) Blindfaller fall tour drew rave reviews and included 16 sold-out shows in Chicago, Denver, Boston, Nashville, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC.
Debuting at #3 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album Chart and #7 on Heatseekers, songs from Blindfaller have garnered over 6 million album streams, with 3.5 million streams on Spotify for the single “Wildfire” and 1.2 million for “Hey Stranger.”
No Depression raves, “The voices of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz were seemingly destined to make music and beautiful sounds together in harmony…the music they make is nothing short of perfection.” Their single, “Hard Travelin’,” previously premiered with PopMatters who called the track, “a delightful mix of Americana, bluegrass and country.
Founded in 2009, Mandolin Orange’s 2013 release This Side of Jordan garnered critical acclaim with NPR calling the album “effortless and beautiful.” Their 2015 follow-up, Such Jubilee, garnered further press praise with Rolling Stone including the album in “30 Great Country Albums of 2015 You Probably Didn’t Hear” and NPR’s Folk Alley’s “Best of 2015 Listener’s Poll.” The record was #1 on Magnet’s “Top 10 Indie Roots Albums of 2015” and Paste called it “an album full of blissful moments.”

Via App is Dylan Scheer, a Queens, NY-based electronic producer and performer.
She started hosting and playing shows, as well as releasing cassettes as Via App
in Boston, and from there she moved on to New York in 2014, where she quickly
became an integral part of the city’s experimental electronic scene.
Her early live hardware sets brought her recognition for their often stark modes
of sample manipulation and collage, dynamic narrative compositions, and their
refusal to adhere to any one genre. More recently, her live sets have maintained
a similar sense of precariousness. She works synthesized sounds into polyrhythmic
infectious grooves which veer from edge to breaking point, unpredictably giving
way to either manic frenzy, or complete pause.
Her studio recordings exist, in part, as documentation of her performances and
are all recorded live.
In 2015, she released ‘7 Headed’, a heavily sample-based techno 12″ that met with
critical acclaim, landing her a spot on the top 10 electronic releases of the year in
The Wire, and an artist feature on Resident Advisor.
She has toured Europe and played esteemed festivals such as Moogfest, Sustain-
Release, Rewire, and will play Unsound Festival this October.
‘Sixth Stitch’ is set for release on Break World records on November 11, 2016.
Hop on for a ride with Look Park and watch their video for “Aeroplane,” which premiered on VEVO.
