Album Review: Kid Face

Title:  Kid Face (Official, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Samantha Crain (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Last.fm, AllMusic, Wikipedia)

Shawnee, OK’s Samantha Crain’s third album Kid Face is a dark and brooding mix of folk, Americana, and indie rock resulting in a sound that is filled with beautifully desperate despair.  The record’s 11 songs drip with raw seething emotion that paint a vivid passion for storytelling and delve deep into the human condition.  What truly makes Kid Face work is Crain’s amazing voice on top of just the right amount of instrumentation.  Everything on this record is done just right, meaning that each song has everything it needs to drive its point home—nothing more and nothing less.  The album’s standout moment, “Somewhere All the Time,” is also its most upbeat; that having been said, the entire record is quite good and a must for fans of Americana, folk, and brooding indie rock.
