Welcome to Sound Read Six - Where new music comes to you.
The Blackest Crow
Originally from Canada and now well-travelled around North America farming sheep, teaching, and researching traditional music, Mike Tod has put it all together for a debut album. Taken from the record, The Blackest Crow sees Mike Tod take the classic tune and work it into a modern-sounding structure through up-to-date recording and production. By getting to the nub of old-time tunes and discovering the soul that provoked their composition, Mike Tod uses his passion and intellect to ensure these treasures are not forgotten. The album is bound to be a classic since it’s back to back with them, and with his training and experience, Tod is the best man for the job.
As birdsong and nature sounds unwind the silence, a pretty steel acoustic guitar begins to gambol through pasture like bars. A rhythm emerges in the flow then vocal and violin add a graceful and moody layer. Blues sensations in the song lend a melancholy and dream infused sway through windy open spaces. Slide guitar then forms new harmonies and abstract inflections to the winding road of words. The drums rise gradually in volume and the music climbs with new avenues of feeling with a female duet to help close the story.
