Tuesday Tip-Off: Samantha Crain

It’s no secret that we here at PE love Samantha Crain, so it shouldn’t be hard to imagine our delight when she announced on ye olde social medias that she has a new EP on the way. The criminally underrated singer-songwriter’s I Guess We Live Here Now will be out April 9th (available for pre-order now) and you can, nay – you WILL, check out the first single “Bloomsday” in pure audio form above, or in that crazy newfangled music video format below.

The B-Side: Spoon and the Forkestra

Brooding and beautiful, hypnotic and unexpected, “The Flaws of Attraction” swirls and envelopes like a less icy Portishead. Whereas Geoff Barrow and Beth Gibbons work in heartbreak and a cold palette, Spoon and the Forkestra‘s Emily-Mae Lewis and Timo Zell give us the same cinematic level drama in warm shades flush with pumping blood and glowing embers. Largely due to the inherent richness of Lewis’ voice, but the production and instrumentation of the track also make it feel a more approachable human endeavor.

The B-Side: Yaron Kaver

It’s quite the trick how “Here’s What I Know Now” invokes all the same warm feelings of effortless beauty and intimate wisdom of a classic Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) tune. And the secret is in the effortlessness. So many artists influenced by Stevens focus on recreating the sonic details of those songs, but not the soul residing within them. They confuse gentle vocals with genuine heart and come off sounding hollow and trite. But not Yaron Kaver. “Here’s What I Know Now” feels as natural and true as the sun rising on a new day.
