Watch Allie Crow Buckley Perform the Title Track From “Moonlit and Devious” in LA for “Neighborhoods”
The psych-folk songwriter’s debut LP is out now.
There’s something bewitching about the self-released debut LP from Los Angeles’s Allie Crow Buckley—deeply embedded in each of the record’s ten folk-infused chamber pop tracks is a certain strand of occult psychedelia familiar to fellow LA rockers like Death Valley Girls. Among the most explicit examples is the album’s title track, which pares Buckley’s sound down to a droning, organ-like keyboard and spacious drum and guitar, while the singer’s moonlit and devious vocals soar over the arrangement.
It’s this track Buckley chose to play for her “Neighborhoods” set, sitting at a keyboard in a very green backyard. Without the inclusion of percussion or raging backing guitar riffs, the song takes on a whole new eeriness, with ACB’s vocals interweaving with minimal organ accompaniment. Watch the performance below.
