Claire Cronin: “Weight of the Kill”

It feels odd to me that most of the comparisons that immediately jump to mind when listening to Claire Cronin‘s excellent Proof of Names EP are equally talented male singer/songwriters. Vocally, Neil Young jumped to mind first. A friend suggested Chad VanGaalen, and I’d have to agree with that as well. Cronin’s quivering but powerful croon and her lyrical gifts — think folksy narrative with a wonderfully expressive touch of heartbreak — are what make this four-song EP a winner. Cronin is based in Los Angeles, and is an awfully creative soul — she does visual and other performing art in addition to strapping on the guitar and singing wonderful songs.

UPDATE: DOWNLOAD  “Weight of the Kill” below, and you can grab the EP at Cronin’s Bandcamp page as well.
