Maybe I was late on the game for this one, but I really wanted to tell you guys about was a band called Little Scream. They’re from Montreal and they’ve got that Dirty Projectors, Land of Talk vibe.  They opened up for Sharon last night at Soda Bar and totally stole the show. Beautiful reverb, stunning vocals, two front women and a violin = perfect. Their debut album is called “The Golden Record” and was co-produced by Richard Reed Carey of Arcade Fire and recorded in the home studio of Aaron Dessner of The National with guest musicians from Stars and Arcade Fire, so yeah, you might say it’s good. I love it when supporting bands blow me away and she totally did. You gotta check her out here.

Sharon was pretty wonderful too, of course. She played a supershort set because she was en route to an early morning KCRW performance in LA. She played a new song that sounded pretty spectacular, the girl crush continues.
