I have exhausted all of my social media outlets talking about this band! I went to see Bosnian Rainbows (featuring Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes) on Tuesday at the First Unitarian Church in Los Angeles with Sister Crayon as the opening act. If you’re a fan of CocoRosie, you will definitely like them. Their name actually comes from a drunk letter singer Terra Lopez wrote to CocoRosie’s Bianca Casady. It’s no wonder Sister Crayon are from Sacramento, the place that has produced other talents like Chelsea Wolfe and Agent Ribbons. Terra has such an incredible voice, it’s seriously unbelievable. Her range is so diverse, at times she sounds as though she’s singing in an opera while at other times, she sounds like she’s on the verge of rapping. I immediately had goosebumps once the band started playing. Everyone in attendance knew they were in the midst of something spectacular. After each song, the crowd cheered, begging for more. I have been to hundreds of shows over the years and it’s been a while since I was this blown away by an act.
Sister Crayon’s most recent release is an EP called Cynic. You should totally give it a listen…like now…don’t delay!
