Yellow Red Sparks is an indie/acoustic act born in the Midwest, but now based out of Los Angeles with hints of Fleet Foxes and early Nada Surf. The band, led by singer-songwriter Joshua Hanson, is quiet, humble, but filled with enough warm-blooded passion to thaw through even the coldest heart. They stun in the simplest ways, make music that’s beautiful in its subtlety. Take for example Hanson’s voice — it doesn’t soar or do curvaceous tricks, but its inherent tremble and crack speak volumes of emotion. Cozy up to “Monsters With Misdemeanors” tonight, you won’t regret it.
