Amoeba Review

10/04/2016

Life and death are at the heart of the South Carolinan duo's latest album, and they perform it with a vitality and vigor as if there was no tomorrow. A more rockin' grouping of songs makes Little Seeds less folky than past ventures and more akin to the sounds of mid-west garage rockers like The Black Keys or The Greenhornes. Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent's approach to their mixture of folk and rock is spiritually similar to that of X's Exene Cervenka and John Doe, with their dual vocals at the helm of their souped up Americana. "Botched Execution" has a Cramps-like morbid sense of humor, while the performance would fit well into the ouvre of Jack White, as would "Buffalo Nickel" with its old-west-saloon funk. The mandolin led "St. Anne's Parade" is a heartfelt, folksy respite from the intensity that pulses throughout the album.
