Molly Pinto Madigan relates her long (and, in our view, fated) journey from performance, to classical study, to music ethnoelectrogrammaticographacology, back to performance.
We're glad she made it.
With a voice stolen from the Fae Folk, Molly Pinto Madigan has been enchanting audiences since she was a young teen. Her 2015 release, "Wildwood Bride," does not disappoint; filled with longing and clarity, this ambitious effort confidently treads the divide between delicate and driven.
A stroke of pure luck brought us through the time warp back to 2005 when I was hosting a different podcast and had just discovered the band Jaded Mandolin. While that group has since disbanded, the members are busy with solo projects.
Molly Pinto Madigan, the silver-throated leading lady of the erstwhile folk/roots combo, has JUST released a new CD, "Wildwood Bride." Molly invited me to share a track from this collection with you, and I had a tough time deciding between them all. You can listen to more of Molly's songs here at the Greylock Glass in TLC #4; WC #2; and WC #4
Or you can save yourself some time and pick up a copy of the CD or digital download right now by clicking the album artwork below, which will take you to our affiliate link at Amazon.com (through which your purchase helps support this site). OR, if you're one of those hopeless audiophiles, you can pick up the VINYL version at her Bandcamp page!
CD, "Wildwood Bride," by Molly Pinto Madigan
Now, I want you to do two things. Firstly, visit this link to Molly's listing for her June 16 Concert Window online performance. You heard her talk about it on the show, and I'm just as interested as you are to see how that works. It's pay what you can (a digital passing of the hat, as it were), so I'm thinking you can't really go wrong.
Next, enjoy the official video for "On the Hunt" embedded below.
Oh, and as promised, click the artwork to buy Jaded Mandolin's self-titled 2007 release!
Jaded Mandolin's self-titled 2007 release is available at Amazon.com.\
I checked out Dirt Floor Recordings, run by Eric Lichter, per Molly's suggestion. Here's what he has to say about this rustic musicians' home-away-from-home, "Simply put, Dirt Floor is a home for creation. An escape from all the sterile environments that dominate the modern recording landscape. Dirt Floor Recording Studio was born in 2006 and built on the same foundation that great studios from the 1970s such as Shangri-La and Caribou Ranch were built on. "
Looks like an awesome place to cut an album if Connecticut is within your gas budget!
Subterranean Kosmic Hole
Honestly, I don't know much about Subterranean Kosmic Hole, but I like their groove. Reminds me a little of a power-funk band I used to know back in Knoxville once. For your listening pleasure, we feature their jam, "Proud Monkey" as our Controlled Exposure track on INDIEcent Exposure.
