What I like most about this new song from Montreal singer-songwriter Little Scream (Laurel Sprengelmeyer) is it’s story telling intimacy. With it’s “Once Upon A Time” opening line – “Stranded in a snowstorm in a town that you forgot” you’re ready to take whatever road she’s heading down. It’s got a contemplative assurance, a dusty, calm ticking of time and a nod to an old Joan Baez record I used to listen to a lot. Her debut album The Golden Road is out on April 12th on Secretly Canadian and was co-produced by Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry. The album features appearances from Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire and on this spectacular song below, The National’s Aaron Dessner. Below the song, a video of a live performance of the song “People Is Place” with Sarah and Richard recorded last November.
