MP3: Lay Low - "I Forgot It's There"

I'm playing catch-up with all of the music and information connected with it, that has landed in my inbox... again. That being said, I'm 50 years behind on checking stuff out! But, being behind has it's bonuses. That bonus being that when you run across a gem, stuck somewhere between the spam and emails from Mom, you get a bit excited.

What gem did you find oh Quirky one, you ask? It's the song "I Forget It's There" by Lay Low from her upcoming album, Farewell Good Night's Sleep. The record is scheduled for its North American release, March 9. Lay Low is the alter ego of Icelandic singer-writer Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir. The record, her North American debut, is being released on her own label Loo Records. Check out the song in today's MP3 Grab below and watch the video for "By and By" which is also from the upcoming record.

Recorded and produced in London by Liam Watson (White Stripes, Holly Golightly, James Hunter) at his analog mecca Toe Rag Studios, the album features eleven new songs (ten penned by Law Low, plus a Lefty Frizzell cover) with backing from the following first-call musicians: Carwyn Ellis (piano), Ed Turner (guitar), Rupert Brown (drums), Matt Radford (bass), Jason Wilson (bass) and BJ Cole (pedal steel, dobro).
