Little Green Cars’ 2013 album ‘Absolute Zero’ quickly became a favorite in my household earlier this year. My two young kids loved their single ‘Harper Lee’, especially my boy who sang over and over ‘there’s a gun in the attic, let me go grab it…’
The fact we played it over and over, in the car and at home did not bother me at all. I quickly fell for the harmonies, lyrics and slightly unusual arrangements. They have a quality that is hard to pin down. It just is.
But I must say I have fallen for Faye O’Rourke’s voice. She has a powerful, hard edge in her delivery. It is sweet and sad at the same time. And it is a delight to listen to the boys in the band harmonize around her.
This is a particularly great song
