Editorial Reviews

First proper album, and second full length release from LAURA STEVENSON AND THE CANS. Members of LATTERMAN and BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. Laura Stevenson was schooled in the traditional music of her grandfather and grandmother (composer of "The Little Drummer Boy" and vocalist for the Benny Goodman Orchestra respectively) from an early age. It wasn't until she started performing with Bomb The Music Industry in her teens, that she began writing on her own. Privately crafting songs on the softer side of indie rock and traditional folk, Stevenson was soon tapped as the band's opener and, with the addition of Mike Campbell and Alex Billig in 2007, Laura Stevenson and the Cans solidified. Their live band grew into a quintet, often times swelling to eight members, and the following debut LP, A Record, won them fans far and wide having been downloaded over 25,000 time since it's 2008 release. Sit Resist, an album centered around never sitting stagnant, sees a matured band that has been continuously at work writing, arranging and touring for the past three years. Lyrically, Stevenson's pen has a sharp, poetic tone, making it impossible not to be taken in by her stories. Where A Record crackled with Stevenson's intimate voice alongside gentle acoustics, begging the listener nearer, Sit Resist commands the attention of all within earshot with its rich instrumentation and textured melodies.

Format: Audio CD
To be honest, I'm surprised that I'm the first person to review this. Sit Resist was seen on many "Top albums of 2011" lists, this predominately Folk/Indie/Rock album definitely deserves it's place there. Laura's beautifully distinctive voice catches the listener while exhibiting great dynamic and melodic range which never detriments the song. Scattered among the album you'll hear guitars, strings, banjos and more providing perfect accompaniment to Laura's vocals. This is a quality album from top to bottom, with the only disappointing moment being the end.

Ignore this album at your peril.

I first saw Laura Stevenson and the Cans on "The Chris Gethard Show" (thechrisgethardshow.com)

Man, this band is awesome. You wanna dance, you wanna move, you wanna feel.

buy this album, play it and get ready to get inspired.

I will preface this by saying "I'm biased", but it is for good reason. Laura is so phenomenally talented! I love her music. If you are new to her then I would recommend "Wheel" which is seriously one of the most spectacular albums ever. Her first 2 albums, "Sit Resist" and "A Record" are more raw which, don't get me wrong, I love but are a different sound and production. She has a solid band too; they can hold their own. If you like an indie rockin-alt-post-punk-folkish kinda vibe; check her out!
