I went to an Aidan Knight concert with my lovely girlfriend Kate a couple weeks ago. I was appalled at the performance of the first opener and pleasantly surprised and somewhat relieved by Leif Vollebekk’s performance. He has impeccable tone and control over his voice, guitar and harmonica. He is also possibly the quirkiest performer I’ve ever seen. Check out his music here.
Pairs Well With…Jeff Buckley, Elvis Costello, Iron & Wine
I’ve been praising Leif Vollebekk since his 2010 debut, but criminally I haven’t been able to catch him at SXSW after back-to-back appearances. I’ll have a third chance this year and I have to imagine Vollebekk will have new songs in tow since it has been so long since Inland’s release.
2012 Review: I can’t help but think of Jeff Buckley while listening to Leif Vollebekk’s soaring and majestic vocals. Influences from jazz to folk to rock all bleed into Vollebekk’s music, a singer-songwriter in the vein of Elvis Costello. Gentle guitar finger picking or piano-based indie rock accompanies him throughout his debut record Inland, which came out in 2010. You can clearly hear his Canadian spin on Americana. These songs are more for a chilly winter’s day than the back-porch country it alludes to throughout most of Vollebekk’s songs. His vocal melodies, part Dylan and part Pavarotti, are incredibly smart and emotionally delivered. I imagine Vollebekk will be featuring new songs for a sophomore record while at SXSW.
Have a safe and happy new year everyone! Highlights:
Leif Vollebekk (9) - These songs are more for a chilly winter’s day than the back-porch country it alludes to throughout most of Vollebekk’s songs.
Trails and Ways (6) – New buzz band Trails and Ways are somewhere between bright electronic pop and morose indie rock on early tracks preceding the release of their debut LP, Trilingual, early next year. The band is generally upbeat with a dreamy gloss that has a ton of appeal.
Ume (6) – Local SXSW mainstay Ume return this year, hopefully with a new record in tow following 2011’s Phantoms. The band features an energetic frontwoman with a strong vocal range playing on top of dark and aggressive alternative rock.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra (5) – UMO has surprisingly caught on with the indie pop community given their lo fi approach to psychedelic rock. The band sophomore record, II, is due in February.
The Virginmarys (5) – Like a heavier version of Spoon, The Virginmarys mix psychedelic rock and blues licks into punchy pop songs. I bet these guys have a great live presence as their energy screams on record.
