In the Fall of 2013, Baltimore folk band The Manly Deeds set out to make a recording like nothing they’d done before. Isolating themselves on a family plot in Carroll County (known as Casper’s Loss) the band recorded 12 songs in 2 days. They converted a 19th century barn into a recording studio and recorded 90% of the record live, with minimal instrument & percussion overdubs. They also added some new players and instruments to this already unique album.
The result… a raw, lush album with all the energy that The Manly Deeds are known to bring to their live show. Preview a video of the making and pre-order the new album, due out Spring of 2014 on Scenic Route Records. We need all the help we can get.
