The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

The Court and Spark performs live (Listen to this set: Real)
 
Live performance by The Court & Spark - Mike (M.C.) Taylor: vocals, acoustic guitar/ Dan Carr: bass, vocals/ Tom Heyman: pedal steel, mandolin/ Scott Hirsch: guitar, vocals/ James Kim: drums
 
Conjuring up the spirit of legendary producer Joe Boyd, The Court and Spark's new album "Witch Season" has all the elements of folk-rock music so near and dear to my heart. Led by singer/ songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist MC Taylor, with lead guitarist Scott Hirsch, The Court and Spark's roots are in the punkier, Ex-Ignota. Meeting up with drummer James Kim after that band's demise they began playing quieter music. After a move to San Francisco, lap steel guitarist Tom Heyman completed the ensemble and they began making music that has been compared to The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and Low.
