Through the silent ambush of heavy snow Friday, three great shows were happening about town, and one that I missed while I was seeing Fanfarlo was Old Canes at the Hi-Dive. Signed to Saddle Creek Records, Old Canes are the project of Appleseed Cast frontman Chris Crisci. I've just stumbled upon their most recent album Feral Harmonic a day late, a dollar short, etc etc.

The marvelously warm opening track on the album breaks exuberant and brightly colored pounding and thumping with a fantastic drumbeat. This beat is certainly the first thing I noticed, since my tapping toes and drumming fingers sprang instantly into action as if controlled by little marionette strings. The middle is punctuated by brilliant brass mariachi cascades and then the call and response starts (see title of the post); I am absolutely convinced and find myself calling right back.

In the face of danger, I am unafraid.
