    First Aid Kit - Sailor Song

    by Jonathan Mathews

    Label: Jagadamba Release Date: 12/07/10 Link: Myspace Page It takes only a second for the beautiful voice of Klara Söderberg to send a shiver through your skin.

    by Rachel Clare

    Hailed by press and fans alike as this generation's answer to Bob Dylan when he arrived on the scene fifteen years ago, the prodigious Conor Oberst has a hell of a lot to live up to, both as a solo artist and as the enigmatic front man of his band Bright Eyes. His fan base are loyal to the point of evangelism, so it is almost guaranteed that they will be hailing The People's Key, Bright Eyes' rumoured last album, as a work of unadulterated genius, but on first listen it's not as black and wh...
