Soft Spots

I saw Soft Spots, for­mer­ly Friend, for­mer­ly Lit­tle Songs at the Beach­land last night. They’ve quick­ly become one of my favorite Cleve­land bands, if not the favorite. They start­ed less than a year ago, and their music, already good to begin with, has only tight­ened and matured with age. They blind­fold­ed the will­ing last night and played their full set to a crowd of peo­ple who couldn’t see them. I was one, could only see a lit­tle bit from the bot­tom of the blind­fold; so it is amaz­ing that the video of their song “Flo­ra” turned out as well as it did. They also played my favorite song, “Tess”, but I was slow on the uptake and didn’t get a chance to record it.
