The Mendoza Line, Athens mp3

Athens, Georgia band The Mendoza Line just dropped into my ears today. They are worth mentioning for their unprententious singersongwriting, which on their soon-to-be-released-in-the-UK album "Full of Light and Full of Fire" is stired with the prettiest protest songs. It's their seventh album and it's in the folk/country tradition sharing a common love of Dylan and Costello.

The topics are quite heavy; the spiritually and economically disenfranchised, the isolated and ruined, those who are lost or are simply trying to disappear. But don't despair, singer Shannon Mary McArdle does a fine job.

It's a small release but it's done with a light hand, so please step forward. It's great!
