The B-Side: Love Crumbs

Welcome to The B-Side, our new daily column where we bring you a bonus song to check out, fall in love and live happily ever after with.

There are great singers and then there are great voices. Voices that grab you from the jump and make you go “WHO IS THIS?” Ali from Love Crumbs falls into the latter category. Yes, there’s a twang and a rasp not unlike Janis Joplin there, but whereas most of the time you hear that in a singer it’s a forced affect – her voice sounds as natural as breathing. The roots soul waltz of “Cavalcades” is a perfect showcase for it, as well as for the tasteful musicality of the group. Quiet when it needs to be, a big shambling climax when the time is right. The lyric “we are bathed in an unstoppable light” isn’t just a positive affirmation within the song, but an apt description of the band’s sound as well.
