Out of the freak folk scene of San Fransisco come trio Little Teeth, who join the ranks of other artists that bend genres such as Joanna Newsom and the Dresden Dolls. Multi-instrumentalists Dannie Murrie, Ammo Eisu, and Andy Tisdall join together to create a sound that is both chaotic and textured in their songs, as evidenced in their first single “Japanese Candy” from the new album “Child Bearing Man“. The album has a gypsy-punk asthetic to it, creaking along a circus-tinged path that grabs as many instruments as possible along the way.
Singer Dannie Murrie’s voice evokes an early Karen O or Kathleen Hannah, both quiet and loud, wild and controlled, but always interesting. She has a unique vulnerability to her voice that underscores the emotions of the lyrics, utilizing its creaks and growls to bring out depth to the melody. Murrie’s lyrics paint many pictures throughout the album, using metaphors as sharp and shifting as her vocal ability.
The band is about to cross the country for the next two months on tour in support of the new record, which is out September 9th through Absolutely Kosher records.
