In 2013, Murúch, the pioneering blog that's been sharing music and culture notes online since 1999, premiered a solo version of Allison Crowe’s “Words”, saying: “What a lush piece of work that song is! There’s a touch of Celtic folk in the instrumentation, haunting backing vocals and a slow building, seething tension until Allison unleashes her wail toward the end of the song.”
“Words” was named #1 of the year’s top songs by Murúch (2013’s other top ten picks came from artists: Alice Boman; Trent Dabbs; Lorde; Vienna Teng; Foxygen; Imagine Dragons; MS MR; & Janelle Monae feat. Erykah Badu): muruch.com/2013/12/muruch-2013-top-songs.html
Now, Allison Crowe and Band unleash a group performance of “Words” with visual accompaniment from another pioneer - Winsor McCay, who revolutionized comics and animation a century ago, through such creations as 1921’s “Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend: The Pet”. Waking here from the surrealistic pillow of “Heirs + Grievances” lyricism.
