Living Body – Body is Working
Powerful, inventive and emotive indie debut album from Living Body, a new project from Leeds-based Chicagoan ex-pat and multi-instrumentalist Jeff T. Smith (formerly behind the experimental electronica work Juffage), featuring longtime collaborators Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin, and touring member of Sleater-Kinney, Wild Beasts, and Flock of Dimes), and Tom Evans (Vessels). A supergroup, yes of sorts, but certainly containing some superlative songwriting.
