"Going up Country" with Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

If you don't know about the sister and brother rocker trio, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, from Camden Town, England, now's the time to take a listen. Do it now and you'll instantly increase your kool-points on the hipstomatic-meter. Living at home with their parents, they tour with Billy Bragg and make all analog recordings on tape with old BBC and RCA mics in their home studio. Their releases have been on 45 and 78rpm vinyl, until very recently, when they became available on cd and iTunes. They're good - really good - extra-special good - and as you can see in the 5min mini-documentary, they are completely hot and a lot of fun. "Going up Country" has a nice warm rich analog sound. Kitty Daisy & Lewis have nailed the old rock'n roll sound and the DIY aesthetic.

Kitty (17) plays drums, harmonica, ukulele, banjo, trombone and guitar. Daisy (22) the lead singer also plays drums, piano, accordion and xylophone. Lewis (19) plays guitar, piano, banjo, lapsteel and drums. They needed a bass player and hey asked their mum. She hadn't played bass before but she learned and joined in. Don't miss out on the chance to have a lot of fun and beat your friends in the race to be the hippest kid on the block, check out Kitty Daisy & Lewis now.
