Bella Clava – The Craic: An Ephemeral Record

Band: Bella Clava
EP: The Craic: An Ephemeral Record
Shot of choice: tequila

The band’s sophomore EP, The Craic: An Ephemeral Record, is a work of good old-fashioned rock and roll art. With powerful piano chords and rich guitar riffs, it’s easy to like the sound on its own. But when you toss in Caitlin Dacey’s vocals, the band leaps from good to amazing. Steve Suttie also sings lead on a couple tracks, and he’s got a good wail, but the real vocal gem is when Caitlin belts it out on “Eve’s Drop”. Oh and hey, did I mention yet that the legendary Steve Albini produced the EP? Just add this album to his resume along with the Pixies, Nirvana and a host of other incredible talent. No doubt, it’s a solid recording by Bella Clava.

Bella Clava fascinates me. It started out as a more complete band (listen to their debut EP, ColdSpell), but has developed into a recording duo that plays live with a couple new additions. See them live and I promise you won’t be disappointed by Caitlin’s voice and Steve’s ability to shred. And hey, buy them a shot, will ya?
