A groovy folk collaboration, Bag Of Kittens is Allyson Seconds, the moonbeam who brings honey velvet vocals and grounded female energy, and Anton Barbeau, the energetic, psychedelic, rock-pop-punk sunray on piano, guitar and driving Neil Diamond-esque vocals.
Allyson and Anton lay down easy-going vibes recording live at The Hangar in Sacramento. Listening to their smooth, clever tunes proves luxurious and effortless, like sunning on a private, tropical beach, slathered in coconut oil with your favorite cocktail, exquisite company, a good read and the occasional gentle breeze.
Tie My Laces is a grown-up stoner song about relationships, I think. Bag of Kittens does hypnotic Janis Ian meets Strawberry Alarm Clock meets Peter, Paul and Mary. I Used To Say Your Name is the hitchhiker burr that grabs onto your pants when you’re crossing a field. It sticks and repeats like a mantra.
