New Amsterdam: NWAM040

"e.e. cummings' language straddles the same aesthetic worlds as Tin Hat's music," says violinist Carla Kihlstedt, whose remarkable singing is at the center of the group's latest project, The Rain is a Handsome Animal - 17 songs from the poetry of e.e. cummings. "He moves between folk rhythms and a more abstract approach - very similar to the musical terrain of Tin Hat."
