MAPAGKAWANGGAWA is the debut full length from NYC singer/songwriter Ira Lawrence. Featuring a haunted mandolin inherited from his grandmother, the eleven tracks are lo-fi laden psych-folk. Atmospheric and twangy, the tracks have a unique sonic vibe, that is decidedly original for this indie genre. Strong lyrical content is a highlight for an album that almost makes the mandolin into a post-punk instrument. A definite must have. Stream and buy MAPAGKAWANGGAWA at the link below.
