Gliding vocals dance over the top of guitars picked and strummed, and harmonies weave amongst the beauty of it all. Banjos, a bass, and a minimal drum kit complete the picture and the songs soar and fall, sometimes evoking sad feelings, sometimes stirring the heart with a gravelly punch. Where do you put Flip Grater? Somewhere along the lines of an alt-country songstress experimenting with indie music, and the grittier side of pop.
She has written songs that could prick the ears up of any that hear them, and with traces of PJ Harvey, a sprinkling of Cat Power and a touch of Suzanne Vega, Flip Grater's music has established her as one of our country's beloved indie-folk artists.
