Chances are that you’ve never heard of the ingeniously (?) titled The Snake, The Cross, The Crown. Why? The band resides on seminal hardcore/emo label Equal Vision Records. However, in the past couple of years, Equal Vision has made a concerted effort to diversify their roster. With the addition of bands like Dear and the Headlights (if you’ve been around awhile, you already know my feelings regarding Dear), Goodbye Tomorrow, and The Snake, The Cross, The Crown, Equal Vision is no longer so scene specific. A newly focused SCC now dabbles in Americana and indie folk on their sophomore album Cotton Teeth. While not a breakout album, it’s undoubtedly a surprise its own right and a welcome addition to the collection of any folk rock aficionado. The title track is beautiful and comes highly rec’d by me.
