Just One Song: The Trapper’s Pelts — Yard Act

  1. It’s a raw story, with lyrics so well crafted and e-NUN-ci-a-TED by front man James Smith. I’m about half deaf, and don’t generally pay much attention to lyrics, but Smith’s staccato style makes it unavoidable. And his messages are anything but subtle.
  2. The orchestration and interplay between Smithand his three band mates is perfect. Their timing is spot on. The coordination of piercing guitar blasts, the primitive pounding of tom-tom drums, and Smith’s impassioned storyline is exquisite.
