Saturday afternoon music with Mark McAdam

Mark McAdam is a charming, low-key singer-songwriter whose faint Americana vibe and gentle acoustic sound is custom made for lazy Saturdays -- even better if it rains a bit, as it is right now onto my rooftop, pitter pat.

"Penny Candy" - Mark McAdam
(short little instrumental piece, reminds me of a slightly off-kilter music box in an old dusty attic; the first track on the album)

"Drunken Waltz" - Mark McAdam
(just as the title sounds, like a drunken waltz, and a nice female duet - with who, I don't know, but her voice sounds familiar)

"The Man Who Never Jumped" - Mark McAdam
(very quiet and sleepy -- folksy lullaby of sorts)

"The Natural Order" - Mark McAdam
(another short little song, with a good helping of slide guitar and some clever lyrics to boot)

Those tracks are all from McAdam's new album called Cavalcade, due out this month on March Records. If you are in NYC on May 13 (next Saturday), Mr. McAdam is having a sort of record release party at Parkside.

So enjoy - anything from him will favorably soundtrack your day today if it is anything like mine.
