The Snake, The Cross, The Crown – Cotton Teeth

Snake Cross Crown

The Snake The Cross The Crown is one of those bands that I’ve been listening to for nearly the entire year, yet haven’t written a single word about them. The same thing happened to The Broken West. Regardless, I included tStCtC on my Best of 2007 list, so its only fair I say a few words.

When I first got the disc, I had planned an entire full review: a catchy intro paragraph somehow relating my personal life to the music, another paragraph for history and background of the band, maybe two short ones concerning the actual music touching briefly on my favorite tracks, and finally, a conclusion that somehow tied it all together. However, I’m lazy, it’s late, and who really wants to read that? So here goes….

alt country / appropriate lazy diction / the songs build / catchy / two of them are brothers

See how much time that saved us? Now for the tunes.

These guys, local to Charlottesville VA, might be of some interest to you in the singer-songwriter/Americana/twang-ternative genre:

Never heard of these guys until they wound up on our list but I really dig them. Nice find plus I enjoy the abbreviated review.

Thanks for the recommendation Kevin. It’s still sinking in, but there isn’t a bad track on the album. I know that it should have been ranked higher on the list of best albums of 07.
