Rambling Quest

Fiddle, banjo, acoustic guitar and heavenly harmonies: welcome to the world of Anna Krippenstapel and Heather Summers, playing together as The Other Years. Their lovely self-titled first album reminds me of a rootsier version of First Aid Kit, and is one of the debuts of the year for sure. And although their own material is very strong, this inspired cover of a Michael Hurley song, an old favourite of mine, caught my fancy especially. File under folk with a capital F.

The Other Years - Wildegeeses

A candidate for Song Of The Day. Unless I play the Gracious Losers album again, then it has no chance.

Wow! This is really lovely. I'm off to check out the album.
