Laura Stevenson and The Cans - Master of Art

Laura Stevenson & The Cans are currently on tour and I've been waiting for them to come back since they blew me away in August when they opened for Maps & Atlases. In that concert they had this energy and sound that didn't come through in the recorded versions of the songs I heard. But this new song, "Master of Art" seems to hint that maybe this album will be a big step forward, and deliver a closer resemblance to their live sets. Laura Stevenson's voice is a distinctly large part of what makes this band stand out from the rest of the female fronted indie rockers of today. If you don't believe me watch this video for Holy Ghost, it is absolutely stunning. Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 9th they will be headlining at Great Scott in Allston. This could be one of the best $8 concerts of the year. Their debut single from their upcoming release came out just this week, making it hard to wait until April 26th for the album.
