From the Sentient Bean website:
Savannah born Lion Versus returns to the South.
“There’s something in the now-Philadelphia-based group Lion Versus’ sepia-toned, gritty folk that clearly speaks of the group’s Georgia origins; it’s something distinct, alluring, and as Southern as Spanish moss and humid nights on the porch swing. The strings are clean and the vocals are delicate, yet they conjure up an unsettling muddy-riverbank feel. Lion Versus edges toward deeper, darker waters than many of the sunnier, up-tempo acts of the Philly bluegrass revival that share some of the same instrumentation but recreate the sound of the mountains rather than the swamp. Hilary White’s low, Natalie Merchant-esque alto feigns innocence as the instruments hypnotically lull listeners. ” – AV Club Philadelphia
A really nice sound, should be an excellent show:
