Watchhouse surprise-released an acoustic album, Watchhouse (Duo), today. The record features the duo of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz offering stripped down versions of songs from their 2021 LP, Watchhouse.

Formerly called Mandolin Orange, the eponymous 2021 album formally reintroduced Marlin and Frantz as Watchhouse. Watchhouse (Duo) arrives almost a year to the day the original album came out on August 13, 2021. Marlin and Frantz re-recorded and self produced the acoustic record’s 11 tracks at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, North Carolina this past June.

“It’s a project that captures the fundamental power of Watchhouse: Two singers and musicians with profound chemistry, performing earnest yet masterfully crafted songs that encompass the unknowable mysteries, existential heartbreak, and communal joys of modern life,” noted press materials heralding the LP’s release.
