In “Hey Stranger,” Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz remind us that you can avoid a lot of heartache by choosing to stay away from trouble. The contemplative song is one of many heartfelt tracks from “Blindfaller,” Mandolin Orange’s latest album. Based in Chapel Hill, Andrew and Emily are the harmonic, Americana/folk duo who make up Mandolin Orange. Both sing and play instruments but decided to add a full band for “Blindfaller,” which also features Clint Mullican on bass, Kyle Keegan on drums, Allyn Love on pedal steel, and Josh Oliver on guitar, keys and vocals. It was released by Hillsborough-based Yep Roc Records.
