The charming indie pop/folk of Ruby the RabbitFoot meets the intimate environs of Sofar Sounds' Dallas venue with this performance of "Misery".
Last autumn, PopMatters premiered a video by Ruby the RabbitFoot, a project helmed by singer/songwriter Ruby Kendrick, entitled "Misery". Now, in a stripped-down arrangement of that tune, Ruby the RabbitFoot take to the stage of Sofar Sounds, a gig collective that houses intimate shows around the world. For this performance, the band took to the stage at Sofar Dallas. With only a clean-toned electric guitar and two voices to fill the venue, Ruby the RabbitFoot give a tender performance that highlights the intimacy of the space.
Ruby tells PopMatters, "I greatly appreciate how respectful and attentive the audiences are at Sofar Sounds. I've played a few sessions and it's always a wonderful experience.“
Ruby the RabbitFoot's latest album, New As Dew, is out now via Normaltown. In his 7 out of 10 review for PopMatters, Eric Risch writes, "Be it a stroke of good luck or artistic focus, Kendrick has chosen—and now earned—a worthy moniker."
