The Cripple Lilies.

Download: The Cripple Lilies -- "Bella Of The Rocks"

Pensacola's The Cripple Lilies is comprised of the central songwriting duo of Chad Bishop and Elizabeth Lopiccolo, and grew out of a group called C.B. Radio. According to the band's site, "fans of their earlier work may be in for a bit of a shock." Apparently, C.B. Radio was a tense, energetic band, as opposed to the Cripple Lilies' gentle, delicate style. The nine songs on La Bete find Bishop and Lopiccolo taking turns on vocals, with warm, subtle instrumentation providing the backdrop. La Bete was produced at Chase Park Transduction, which is based here in Athens, and was recorded by David Barbe of Sugar, who has also worked with Son Volt, The Drive-By Truckers, and many more.

The Cripple Lilies are playing several dates through June from Florida to Texas to North Dakota, so be sure to pause a moment and find them in your town.
