We recently posted Orpheum Bell’s track Poor Laetitia, describing it as Gypsy Americana or Country & Eastern music.
It came from their scheduled new album The Old Sister’s Home, due May 8th and the band have made a new song available for free download. Daddy’s Crying is, as you might expect, a melancholy lament accompanied by suitcase pump organ, shepherd harp, oboe, violin and french horn. Over nearly six minutes it recounts the story of two brothers caring for each other during troubled times for their father, mixing the sweetly sorrowful vocals of Katie Lee with the altogether gruffer, but still tender voice of Aaron Klein.
This intimate, waltzy vignette is another example of their elegant and organic sound. It is the perfect soundtrack to a hot bath, a bottle of red wine and a broken heart. Dive in and indulge yourself.
