Marble Orchard contains many of the elements that make up some of Denver's finest minor-chord melancholy roots-rock bands: the warbling vocals, the haunting odes and a sincerity of delivery. Who knew that the Queen City of the Plains would inspire so many dark, chamber-style, country-flavored acts? Unfortunately, this band's traditional arrangements never really wander out of the roots stall long enough to sound more than derivative and, in their quest for Nick Cave-like drama, many tunes don't quite connect. The Orchard has yet to bear its own unique fruit.
