Rodney DeCroo and Great Aunt Ida at Amigos

April 30, 2015 @ 10:00 pm

Tickets available at the door.

Once you’ve heard the flat-out devastating The Allegheny, it somehow seems wrong to label Rodney DeCroo as a songwriter. For much of the past decade, the 45-year-old has been seen as exactly that, his raw, often breathtaking records falling under the mean-nothing umbrella of Americana. Raw, captivating, and essential, The Allegheny rebrands DeCroo as an artist determined to challenge himself and his fans. In doing so, he’s produced what will be remembered as one of the best, most unflinchingly honest records of the year. If the singer, poet, or whatever you want to call him somehow isn’t on your radar yet, this is where you really need to ask yourself why.

Great Aunt Ida sounds more like a shy 10-year-old girl whispering secrets into the microphone than my great aunt – but this vocal innocence creates an interesting contrast with her mature sound and literary lyrics. With a Radiohead-esque melodic sense and a Rachel-esque darkness, B.C. pianist Ida Nilsen creates lovely little indie-pop poems to sooth crooked hearts.
