Recording: Abigail Lapell

Artist: Abigail Lapell

Song: Night Bird and Morning Bird*

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), June 1, 2013.

Abigail Lapell - Night Bird and Morning Bird

Full review to follow. I dropped in for this early slot at the Tranzac to catch Gabe Levine playing, which gave me a chance to encounter Abigail Lapell, the evening's host. The songs hinted at city sadnesses, fairytale grimness and, er, dirty dreams played with more hints of crazyhorse bite than dainty gentility. She's been playing with friends in her "Early Birds" residency, which runs (in the early slot, natch) first Saturdays — which makes the next one July 6, 2013.

* Thanks to Abigail for passing along the title to this one.
