12032014 - Julie & the New Favorites "Recipe"
All of a sudden discovered that I had marked this album as a favourite om my streaming media player, most likely while going through last year's releases for work purposes in November or December. This is a Norwegian quartet, and their low key bluegrass influenced country tinged folk (or the other way around) is simply gorgeous! Vocalist Julie M. Sandø's voice is as crystal clear as a mountain creek in spring, and she carries on in the tradition of Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss as if she were born and raised in the Appalachians! There's even hints of Joni and Emmylou in her singing! Meanwhile the band impresses like hell, and if somebody had played this album for me and claimed that these guys were seasoned American bluegrass veterans I would totally have bought that! This is simply top notch world class stuff!
