If there's a lullaby-esque quality to Something About Knowing (October 2013, Saddle Creek), the latest release from singer-songwriter Maria Taylor (of Azure Ray, formerly of Bright Eyes), there's a reason for that: Taylor's newborn child inspired some of the tracks. In our review of the album last month, we wrote that not all great art has to come from a dark or difficult place, and "sometimes there is beauty in simplicity and it, too, can resonate."
This Duck Club/Ten Gallon Cat show at The Crux promises to be great, with opener PJ Bond, a down-to-earth New Jersey singer-songwriter, whose website description is simply, "I write songs and sing them. I move my body around the world. I love people and pizza"--and the rich, dreamscape sounds of locals Sleepy Seeds, who will kick off the show.
