    In this, their sixth year as a band, Maiden Radio brings us the gorgeous new collection, Wolvering. Pulled from an ever-deepening exploration of traditional Kentucky and Appalachian music, Wolvering shines a light on some dark and lovely early-American songs. There are also a couple breath-taking originals, everything being done in their trademark three-part harmony.

    The album derives its name from the place where it was recorded. The trio of Joan Shelley, Julia Purcell and Cheyenne Mize spent a week of January tucked away in remote Wolverine, Michigan, where these songs were captured, mostly live, by engineer Shane Leonard. When on the third day the access bridge flooded and iced over (with the fuel tank soon to run out as well), the fireplace became an essential part of the session (of life!); you can hear the crackle sometimes as the songs fade in and out.

    Maiden Radio’s new studio album Wolvering is out now via OK Recordings and is available on limited Vinyl, CD and digital formats.
