More Info:

"Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards create a stunning, forward-looking sound that charts a path for innovation in folk music." -PopMatters

"...vocally superb... amazing talent with the fiddle" -Maverick "Like many of the best "folk" bands, this talented quartet is much more of an uncategorisable and dynamic force" -Americana UK "... their close and complex harmonies and imaginative arrangements signified the best of folk right now." -The Bluegrass Situation Expanding on the boundaries of what an indie-folk band can be, Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards take their extensive string music background, add their knowledge of folk and roots music, and incorporate an edgy pop sensibility to create their latest album, BITTER BETTER. A stunning lesson in all the ways string instruments can be played- bowed, plucked, percussively - the album showcases Cortese and multi-instrumentalist producer Sam Kassirer (Lula Wiles, Lake Street Dive) striving to capture the most adventurous approach to each moment. The result is an album that incorporates dance-worthy foundational grooves, synth, and loops to push the boundaries of the genre. The band has been invited to support The Mountain Goats on their extended US tour, which kicks off in late April.
