2007-05-07Crooked Still's debut album Hop High, first released in 2004, has enough grabbed attention and criticall acclaim to merit a second release – this time nationwide. The musical style of this alternative bluegrass band floats playfully and gently from song to song. The song's titles, such as “Old Virginia” and “Shady Grove” reflect the band's traditional, country tone. Aoife O'Donovan's vocals are sweet, breezy, angelic – the all-acoustic background of cello, bass and banjo give her smooth, low voice a gentle but upbeat, soft and stringy resonance. Emily Rattray
