This week’s roundup of new menu items hot off the stove includes some lush sounds (Violens, Saint Lou Lou) to start off and then some more folky down-home sounds (First Aid Kit, Paul McCartney). Two sister duo’s too – Saint Lou Lou are twins and the daughters of Steve Kilbey, lead singer/lyricist/bassist of The Church; while First Aid Kit are also sisters. Though not twins, I don’t think. I’m not sure if that will harm or help their music career…. Strangely enough, both duo’s are from Sweden. Must be something in the water.
Violens– “Sariza Spring” (from True, 2012):
Saint Lou Lou– “Maybe You” (single- no album yet, 2012):
First Aid Kit– “Emmylou” (from The Lion’s Roar, 2012):
Paul and Linda McCartney– “Heart of the Country” (from the new re-issued, remastered Ram, 2012 – original 1970):
