It’s Banjo Sunday, y’all.
Comparisons I shall draw (and for which I make no apologies): Sofia Crowsfoot is as spunky as Cary Ann Hearst and with a hearty voice to match.
Things I shall note: Sofia was formerly known as Squinch Owl, an outfit we adored. Thus, it makes sense that we would venerate her release with Link Crowsfoot (formerly of Thy Courage Quail, whose goblin’s gate is a release worthy of your time in its own right) as Thorn & Shout.
13 gorgeous songs, Sofia and Link trading off vocal responsibilities and sharing that burden, backed by banjo at times.
A sublime set of songs, a lovely album that is sure to reside at our playlist for some time to come.
