LIVE: Lucius

“Turn It Around”

I was lucky enough to make it to one day of Boston Calling this past weekend, where I saw two of my favorite bands who I’ve wanted to see live for quite some time – Local Natives and Vampire Weekend. They both delivered amazing performances!

I also happened to see a set from the band Lucius and I’m so thrilled I did because I totally fell in love! I’m psyched to catch wind of this Brooklyn-based group so early on…their debut album, Wildewoman comes out on October 15th and they’ve got a slew of tour dates in small rooms lined up for the fall. SEE THEM LIVE if they’re coming to your area – TOUR DATES HERE. I can guess they won’t be playing small rooms for long!

NEWPORT FOLK: First Aid Kit

“Blue”

I remember hearing about First Aid Kit years ago when they caught a lot of attention on YouTube for their cover of the Fleet Foxes tune “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song”. Since then, I haven’t been keeping up with the Swedish duo…but I poked around their catalog when I saw them on the Newport Folk lineup. I like most of what I heard from them, but this particular song is far and away my favorite! As always, these sisters nail the harmonies and there’s such a playfulness to the tune, despite the sad lyrics (and perfectly creepy video):
