Doo Crowder specializes in “avant/traditional music” or “praying in the dark-core” (their words, not ours)… But somehow, these genre amalgamations make total sense when you listen to his latest offering, “Gratitude.”  Crowder (and his accomplices Celie Dailey and Shana Vorhauer) have crafted a borderline freak-folk, electronica-flavored tune with a pure and honest sunny disposition. This one would sit comfortably on a shelf next to the output of early 2000s Bright Eyes, Sufjan Stevens, or Electric President.

We’re totally smitten with the squiggly synth splashes throughout “Gratitude.” Check it out below via YouTube or swing by Spotify for a streaming option.
