PREMIERE: Laura Stevenson & The Cans - Master Of Art
I would expect big things from an alum of Bomb The Music Industry, the Long Island DIY collective who have nailed mish moshed folk punk numbers down to a science. Good thing Laura Stevenson & The Cans delivered, retaining the folk element and infusing it with feminine grace. "Master Of Art" is a tinge of Joanna Newsom minus the harp, Kate Nash if Kate Nash was cool and hell, let's even throw some Jewel in there circa those years she lived in the truck. It's fun and sincere and pretty, and full length Sit Resist will be out April 26 on Don Giovanni. Catch the Cans at the label's two-day showcase this weekend in Brooklyn.
