Lions & Vultures

Posted: January 13th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: links, reviews | No Comments »

“The first time I posted about Claire Cronin’s music (almost a year ago, crazy) I thought about snowfall, and about how her music matched that feeling. Now here I am, about to spend my first winter away from Wisconsin (not a single flake out here so far), repeatedly playing her two newest tracks.

     The FOOTBALL Ep is still the hauntingly beautiful, incredibly thoughtful songwriting that I loved from her previous release. But these two, especially For What It Is Worth, have a nice anecdotal feel to them. These moments are dark, but she presents them so delicately, that I think we all feel a little better after listening.”
