Foolish Beauty is the first full length release from Dark Little Rooms.
Dark Little Rooms is the song writing vehicle of Scott Crowder. From 2001-2005 Crowder and band alternated between writing, recording and playing shows with the likes of Stellastarr*, French Kicks, Smog & Denali.
Heavily inspired by the reissue only label, Numero Group, Bruce Springsteen''s "Nebraska" and the posthumous release of Jeff Buckley’s “My Sweetheart The Drunk”, Crowder set off to present his latest work of home recordings to a larger audience and enlisted the talents of Jeff Lipton at Peerless Mastering to best capture and present the albums sessions.
All sessions were recorded on a Tascam 388 8 track recorder in the various apartments and homes that Crowder lived in while he and his wife called Richmond, VA home.
The album is the second release from Blind Sea Records.
From a recent review...
"Dark Little Rooms 2003 self-released eponymous CD was an impressive piano-driven album featuring the soulful vocals of Scott Crowder. Three years later, Crowder is back with a solo album that is a slight departure from Dark Little Rooms but it does not completely break away from the blue eyed soul sound. Foolish Beauty is a hauntingly beautiful effort that blends a modern electronic influenced sound with spiritual vocals full of pain, longing, and regret. ‘Devotion Song’ and ‘Nothing I Wouldn’t Do’ definitely stand out as the album’s best tracks and draw comparisons to U2 and Tom Waits."
