Papercranes is a band let by Rain Phoenix along with a revolving cast of additional musicians. Her new album, "Let's Make Babies in the Woods," is a mix of gritty yet dreamy folk, indie rock, and orchestral expansiveness. The soul of the record is definitely in Rain's voice, which can be an airy whisper one minute and a shiver-inducing, raspy wail the next. It comes out January 24th on Manimal Vinyl.
