Lean in to Mandolin Orange's new album, "Blindfaller," and it's bound to happen. You'll suddenly pick up on the power and devastation lurking in its quietude, the doom hiding beneath its unvarnished beauty. You'll hear the way it magnifies the intimacy at the heart of the North Carolina duo's music, as if they created their own musical language as they recorded it.Due Sept. 30 on Yep Roc Records, "Blindfaller" builds on the acclaim of Mandolin Orange's breakthrough debut on the label, 2013's "This Side of Jordan," and its follow-up, last year's "Such Jubilee."Since then they've steadily picked up speed and fans they've earned from long stretches on the road, including appearances at Newport Folk Festival, Austin City Limits Fest, and Telluride Bluegrass. It's been an auspicious journey for a pair who casually met at a bluegrass jam session in 2009."When we finished 'Such Jubilee,' I started writing these songs with a different goal in mind. I thought about how I would write songs for somebody else to record," Marlin explains. "I ended up with a bunch of songs like that, but we chose ones that I still felt personally connected to."Holed up at the Rubber Room studio in Chapel Hill, N.C., with a full band this time around, they laid down the tracks in a week between touring. They've always been keen on the notion that drawn-out recording sessions don't necessarily yield better results. A good song, and just one good take, will always shine through any studio sorcery.The passage of time, and the regret that often accompanies it, courses through these songs. "When did all the good times turn to hard lineson my face/ And lead me so far from my place right by your side?" Marlin ruminates on "My Blinded Heart."As for the album title, it's meant to evoke a sense of wonder, of contemplation. A "faller" is someone who fells trees, and in this case that person is blind to his/her own actions and those of the world. The spectral cover photo, by Scott McCormick, is open to interpretation, too: Either those trees are engulfed in flames or sunlight is pouring through them. It's up to you."We wanted different vibes and different intuitions on these tracks," Marlin says, "and I feel like we really captured that."
