iTunes Review

Icelandic singer/songwriter Lay Low takes a meander down the back roads of heartache on Farewell Good Night’s Sleep, her U.S. debut album. Ms. Low's (a.k.a. Lovísa Elisabet Sigrúnardóttir) dreamy, waif-like vocals conceal a sly sophistication that lifts her beyond mere revivalism. Backed up by a sharp combo, Lay Low pines her way through such downbeat confessions as “On My Own,” “Little by Little” and the title number. Yet she’s no mere romantic martyr — in “By and By” and “The Country Ballad,” she carries herself with a survivor’s resolve. A few curve balls — such as the sultry jazz feel of “Why Do I Worry?” and the teasing Latin vibe of “My Second Hand Heart” — add variety to the album’s acoustic folk-based approach. Lay Low can sound downright eerie (especially on “I Forgot It’s There”), but she’s also capable of delivering sweetly hopeful love songs, as “Days Have Been” shows. Farewell Good Night’s Sleep’s understated production (courtesy of Liam Watson) captures the right mood of midnight reverie, suggestive of dim candles and pillows stained with tears.

Discovered a gem

Just heard Lay Low interviewed on NPR so I came to check out the album...bought it right away. I love her voice and her style. Very reminiscent of Patsy Cline and other 50's-60's country singers. There's something about Lay Low's voice that is so personal. This is also my first downlaod of a singer from Iceland!

surprised, actually.

This album is surprisingly relaxing and inspiring. "By and By" is a good one, and it's great to listen to while doing something productive like writing a mid-term paper or cleaning the kitchen. This is a lovely album, Lay Low! Bravo!

smooth

I have always loved Patsy Clines voice, but when I heard an interview of Lay Low on NPR I was taken aback. This girl has an absolutely mesmerizing voice and a sound that is her own, even though her reputation is that she is the next Patsy. It is so innocent and lush sounding, but what impressed me more is the fact that everything she records is all analog with no overdubs or splicing. What a warm voice and soothing music to back it up. This is a must buy from this indie group.
