Your Daily Lick: Crooked Jades

Shining Darkness (Jade Note Music)



With five full-length albums, one EP, and a track on the Into the Wild soundtrack under its belt, San Francisco's Crooked Jades is no fly-by-night folk outfit. In fact, the band's done a bit too much: at nineteen tracks and 58 minutes, Shining Darkness' bountiful heapings of fiddle, banjo, harmonium, and ukulele are tough to handle all at once.
