Now available!! On Side A of this Americana-themed split single, National Yodeling Champion Larry Wilder directs his Appalachian yowl toward the lore surrounding Portland’s original Voodoo Doughnut store.
In a pun-filled ballad reminiscent of both “Weird Al” Yankovic and Jimmie Rogers, Wilder spins a tale of true romance and double entendre interspersed with his signature yodel. On Side B, Portland’s beloved Dickel Brothers reunite for a doughnut song of their own. For “Mama’s Sweet Rounds,” the Dickels recorded fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, double bass and vocal parts all at once. The result is rich, holistic and mysterious, as if the song was recorded into a tin can in the 1930s…yet it is just as full of sly references to libidinous practices as the yodel number.
Voodoo Doughnut Recordings will be releasing a new single every month this year, so stay tuned for more….
