Samantha Crain will release her brand new album, Kid Face, on February 19, 2013 (Ramseur Records). So that is something to look forward to during the winter doldrums.
On this, her third full-length release, Crain worked with musician/producer John Vanderslice and recorded in his San Francisco studio, Tiny Telephone in June, 2012. The 11 tracks, all penned by Crain, showcase her extraordinary confidence as a singer, a musician, and a gifted storyteller, rendered with a blue-collar authenticity.
Kid Face offers an intimate look into the life, mind, heart and imagination of Crain. On the album, Samantha addresses the taking of precious private time ("Somewhere All The Time"), craving acknowledgement in reaching a place of personal responsibility for past transgressions ("Taught To Lie"), finally arriving on the threshold of new beginnings after a hard break up ("Never Going Back"), and the idea of offering love, encouragement and refuge to people who have lost themselves to inhumanity ("Ax").
We are sort of in love with her from these descriptions.
"For the Miner" finds Crain, a Shawnee, Oklahoma-bred Indian, conversing with and consoling singer-songwriter Jason Molina for all of the pain and 'beautiful sadness' that is inherent in his lyrics, while on "The Pattern Has Changed," she comes face to face with the times in life when one distinct moment changes everything, and how the consequences echo like ripples in a pool.
