Mama’s Broke (from the album Narrow Line available on Mama’s Broke/Free Dirt Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
The front parlor picking vibe of Mama’s Broke is mountain ballad sad. While their latest in Narrow Line does have that Old-Time bounce, this is music that harkens a hard, contemplative listen tapping your foot to a chuggy two-step. The Canadian duo delivers out Goth Folk ripe for a dark club or a festival stage. Narrow Line is plucked instrumentation and hushed harmonies that ache over a and somber delivery.
Mama’s Broke drop influential quips in album opener “Just Pick One”, claiming ‘fear is only worth what it costs you’ or ‘there ain’t nothing that’s worthless if it arms you’. These inspirational calls are delivered in haunting tones. “Oh Sun/Pale Night/Forgetting Reel” is a combined acapella number that opens into an Old-Time reel while lonely fiddle trade duets with the harmonies of Lisa Maria and Amy Lou Keeler on “Octobers Lament”.
“Pick the Raisins from the Paska” is an instrumental with an Old-Time feel that is both Appalachia and Eastern Europe. “The Wreckage Done” has more punching fiddle, clawhammer banjo, and haunting harmonies. Combined vocals set the instruments aside for another acapella cut, “The One That I Love”.
Narrow Line is where dark melodies, timeless and ancient while ripe for today, cut a Gothic path through Americana. Mama’s Broke offer Folk music delivered with that DIY mentality. (by Bryant Liggett)
