Teeth by The Loom on Apple Music

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Although The Loom’s instrumentation (Lis Rubard’s trumpet and French horn, Alex Greiner’s banjo and accordion, and John Fanning’s ukulele) give this Brooklyn-based collective an eclectic feel, that’s all for variety’s sake; there’s also a compelling focus to the material. “A Song of Faint Praise” builds to catharsis, but the song’s center is a somber folk move built around acoustic guitar and a vocal that’s pure heart. Comparisons to fellow Brooklyn transplants The National are apt when considering the likeness between its singer (Matt Berninger) and Fanning. However, The Loom is fortunate to have an extra weapon with vocal counterpoints by Sydney Price (since replaced by another potential threat). The Loom’s debut album, Teeth, is solid, with several immediately affecting tunes, such as “For All My Friends in Spring, For All My Friends in Fall,” “The Middle Distance,” and the dramatic extended works “For the Hooves That Gallop, And the Heels That March” and “Give Up the Ghost.” The Loom is a young group with terrific execution and potential.
