Mallory - Strange Homes (2010)

New album from Amherst, MA folk-punk band Mallory. I got specific and unsolicited permission to post this album on my blog, which is pretty awesome.

For anyone who liked Lights in the Quarry, Strange Homes has everything that made that album so great, and it has MORE of it.  It shows an evolution of their distinctive take on the folk-punk sound, branching out with accordions, banjos and such things. The whole album is enjoyable start to finish and never lags.

A perfect example of why acoustic instruments of all sorts are superior to electric instruments of any sort.
