You like The Tallest Man On Earth? Of course you do, you frequent folk blogs! As such, you need this, for this woman is Kristian Matsson’s wife…
A long, long, long time ago I asked you all to listen to Idiot Wind. Myspace was someplace we all still went for music back then. Some dude from Megafaun mentioned somewhere that Amanda Bergman was amazing and I went on the hunt. There was nothin to find ‘cept that clip at Myspace but that was good enough. Now, we have this little bit of jams so kindly uploaded for us at Bandcamp.
5 absolutely gorgeous songs. A lady who performs under the name of a Dylan song, covering a Dylan song below. You need this in your life…
I mentioned that The Lumineers set at Wakarusa was one of the best things ever — my best friend next to me so greatly enjoying herself was a highlight, too. I want to see this band over and over this year.
These slightly re-worked songs are brilliant.
The addition of mandolin/piano dude was a good one. A really good one (and he was a g’damn treat live, his excitement palpable).
Same goes for bass dude.
Chicks that play the cello are pretty fucking rad. Chicks that sing so pretty are even more rad.
Lead singer Schultz is wearing a shirt that reads “Springsteen For President”. I can get behind that.
