"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.
