Album of the Week: Narrow Line by Mama's Broke

There are some albums that instantly give you a vibe.

Whether it's one that makes you want to put it on during a Saturday night dinner party, one for the background while you sauna, one to dance to, or like Narrow Line, by Mama's Broke, a kind of album that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a blanket and cup of tea.

Mama's Broke is a Canadian duo that plays old time folk music with a tinge of Celtic and European influence, all presented in a dark/noir way.

And there is something about frequently using flat notes throughout the music that pulls at the heartstrings.

Folk music's core is always storytelling, and Mama's Broke's songs certainly do just that.

Listen to more of Narrow Line on KAXE, our featured album of the week.
