Active Child on Daytrotter.

Originally a Harpist, Pat Grossi's Active Child was one of my favorite electronic acts of 2010. In his Daytrotter session, Grossi and his backing band forgo all the electronics and most of the R&B flavoring for an almost painfully stark re-imagining of probably my three favorite Active Child songs. When your Love is Safe and I'm in your Church at Night both focus primarily on Grossi's white-boy-soulful voice and harp. Wilderness on the other hand takes a bluesy, almost Bon Iver like approach to the song that spins the whole feeling of the song on its head.
uhhh check it out already!
