Best known for his emo-ish project Dashboard Confessional, singer Chris Carrabba is a folkie at heart. At least that’s the impression you get from listening to his new band, Twin Forks, which pairs him with mandolin player Suzie Zeldin, bassist Jonathan Clark and drummer Ben Homola. The band’s new self-titled album features a collection of upbeat, folk-inspired tunes that’ll appeal more to fans of, say, Mumford and Sons than of the Promise Ring. Songs such as “Scraping Up the Pieces” sound like a traditional number or something by the Pogues, one of Carrabba's big influences. In addition to the full-length, the band has a couple of EPs under its belt, so it's more than able to play a hearty set. (Niesel) .
