I just got put onto this band by RCRDLBL as I was in the mood for some new female led indie rock with a slightly folky edge to the lyrics. Nothing wrong with very specific moods – if you know what you want, it makes it even better when you get it. Big love to croissants and hummus.

Lead singer Laura Stevenson comes from a musical family (her grandfather composed “The Little Drummer Boy“!) and has a great vocal range, switching fluidly from a powerful, almost poppy sound in the chorus to a dreamy and more fragile sound to accompany the lush textures of the verses.

Laura Stevenson & The Cans’ (check out their Tumblr here for more information) second LP Sit Resist comes out tomorrow on Don Giovanni Records, and two tracks are available for download below, one via a RCRDLBL widget.
