Music from Music Seen: Cerf-Volantes

In tomorrow's Music Seen, we'll have a review of last night's performance at the Dooryard by Andrew Frederick, a/k/a Cerf-Volantes, written by Sonya Tomlinson. It's pretty well within the "conflict of interest" realm for me to promote the young singer-songwriter - I've heard many of his songs being built through a closed bedroom for much of the past two years - but I'm not good at mincing words about my enthusiasm for much of anything, so trust me as I highly recommend you pay a visit to his Myspace page.

As Sonya mentions in her review, the highlight of Frederick's current material is "Me and the Wolf," a conflicted lullabye with an indelible climax, where Frederick's looped refrain of "ready or not" gradually swells and clutters into a lo-fi eruption of sorts. Is it foreboding, fearful, defiant, triumphant? Probably a shade of each. Regardless, it's given me the extremely proud warm fuzzies all day.
