The Dream Alive (Variant)
Limited 45 rpm Variant Vinyl LP pressing of this 2016 EP. Vocal Few (Matt MacDonald, vocalist/guitarist of The Classic Crime and wife, vocalist/pianist Kristie MacDonald) have taken American folk/pop to a new level with The Dream Alive EP. Staying committed to the do-it-yourself lifestyle, the duo has again independently written, recorded and released the resonant, string-laden album in partnership with BC Music. Early reviews are already calling The Dream Alive the duo's finest offering of their career, with one outlet referring to opening track 'The Corner Dwellers' as "the greatest song of the year." MacDonald claims this as the most important entry in the Vocal Few canon, being the first set of songs " not motivated by impending childbirth," an aspect that allowed the band to develop the songs naturally over time.
