Clearly embracing the maxim that less is more, local alt-folk duo Little Crow keeps things spare on this four-song release.
Sometimes we hear nothing but singer-songwriter Emily Seal’s voice and Kas Baker’s guitar. “Devil in Disguise” features more of a full-band sound, complete with distant-thunder drums, but that only adds to the haunting, country-noir sound.
“Sweet Time” strips things back to the basic elements, but adds heaven-sent multitracked harmonies and searing cello courtesy of Alex Hauka.
Put Little Crow on a playlist alongside Daughter and Kandle, then settle in to watch the November rain.
