Alan Sparhawk of Low will be playing a webcast gig tonight with The Murder Of Crows, his collaborative project with singer/violinist Gaelynn Lea of indie folk collective Snöbarn - have a listen to their recent 7 track EP 'Imperfecta' (artwork above) below:

The duo started writing together after performing a live soundtrack for a Lon Chaney film screening last year, going on to record the EP in Lea’s living room, gazed on/inspired by legions of neighbourhood birds, leaving them to describe it as “ideal bird-watching music”.

The band are webcasting tonight’s show from the Sacred Heart church in Duluth to reach fans outside Minnesota, which starts at 7pm GMT - watch the show here. Tickets are on a ‘name your price’ basis, but there are only limited numbers left, so act quick!

UPDATE: The Murder Of Crows have announced a new date in Saint Paul in November:

NOVEMBER
Fri 16 - Amsterdam Bar and Hall, Saint Paul, Minnesota

Support comes from Deceitful Lapwings, and you can get tickets here.

As a preview, here’s a clip of them performing ‘Your Battle’ last year:

Hey, it's Gaelynn here, from The Murder of Crows! I just wanted to clarify that my disability does not prevent me from performing live... We performed 5 live shows last week! We just did the StageIt thing so people outside of Minnesota could be at a show. Just wanted to clarify. :)
