New Music - McCarthy Trenching

Here’s a couple of new tunes for those who dig authentic sounding Americana. McCarthy Trenching is primarily the work of Dan McCarthy, who sounds uncannily similar to Mississippi John Hurt on “Mormon Girl Blues” - a finger-picked folk-blues song that could easily have been written 100 years ago. To get that old-timey feel McCarthy records his songs at home on an 8-track tape machine “mostly in the living room, because that’s where the piano is”. He’s joined on his new sophomore record Calamity Drenching by a talented assortment of Team Love and Saddle Creek stalwarts. The 3 tracks that have been released as promo mp3s are full of rich acoustics, sharp wit, and droll humor - and most of all a distinctive Midwestern voice singing songs about girls, alcohol, and cassette tapes. You can’t really have enough of those. It comes out 9/23. This is the good shit.
