Mike & Cara Gangloff

Hey all, we're hard at work finishing up all the details for what we think will be our best album yet. More details soon, but it's a big step beyond, in a bunch of ways ------- and there's an orchestra involved.

In the meantime, we're delighted to announce that MIE Records has released a gorgeous vinyl version of Black Ribbon of Death, Silver Thread of LIfe and we have a few of them here at Klang Industries. And the Great Pop Supplement has put out a cherry red vinyl, deluxe 7-inch featuring our Durang's Hornpipe and Rake & Rambling Boy -- both are traditional tunes: the first is a fiddle/wheel fiddle exploration, the second a duo vocal w/sruti box using verses we learned from a home recording of Currence Hammons.

And we now have a Facebook page that we'll probably mostly use to announce shows and recordings. But we're doing some housecleaning around Klang HQ South, and maybe the Facebook can also be a bulletin board for old pictures and flyers and sounds that we come across.

We had an amazing run of shows in Finland and France this past spring -- heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out to hear us; we are humbled and so gratified for the hospitality that we were shown.

Matt Peyton, our minister of projection, put together a video for our Mulberry Raider and The Wire is featuring it right here.

Matt's also behind a video for West India, an old West Virginia fiddle tune that we used as a jumping off point for some fiddle-vielle a roue exploration. Look for more soon and thanks for listening.
