Raising the Fawn - The North SeaThe first CD by these cringe rockers was a cycle of fragile love songs addressed by lead singer John Crossingham to then-drummer Lesa Hannah, prompting one critic to rightly ask, “Doesn’t this make her blush?” Hannah has since left the Toronto band (to become a fashion journalist) and Crossingham’s sad-core songs now take a broader view. Although he often sounds like Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Crossingham’s sweet “Gwendolyne,” the groove-laden “Top to Bottom” and the dreamy title track are pure aural ambrosia.
