Released: 6th Jan 2014


an instantly accessible gem, enabling the uncommonly insightful & fearlessly honest young singer songwriter to explore the  full range of her achingly vulnerable voice, produced by john vanderslice (The Mountain Goats & Spoon).

Although initially inspired by the sounds of her father’s record collection, including Bob Dylan & Neil Young, an adolescent Crain took even greater solace in the music of her home state, from the Americana of Woody Guthrie to the sonic experiments of the Flaming Lips. for fans of first aid kit & caitlin rose. ‘Kid Face’ also includes previously unreleased bonus demos & covers. "Her powerhouse wail cuts to the quick, an oddly fascinating combination of booming power & quavering vulnerability" - spin.

***The CD format includes a bonus disc, the LP edition includes a download card featuring the album and the bonus tracks***
