"Frostburg, Maryland’s musical collective, The Royal Army Recording Co., returns with a full-length follow-up to their EP “Mary, Your Ghost Is Showing”. Twisted into a country folk album that skirts traditional sounds for a more alternative version, “Contortionist Blues Vol. 1” is a lo-fi adventure that’s worth a few repeat listens. The album is subtitled, “10 Days on the Poor Farm” which evokes imagery from the tiny valley community in West Virginia where Kenny and Curt Tompkins were raised. Great blues-folk numbers that are perfectly fit for a coffeehouse or porch near you."
