My Larsdotter and Bubba Tomasdottir make soulful, sensual, unhurried music that’s as playful as it is powerful. The sparse songs sometimes feature a cappella, body percussion, or simple acoustic arrangements. The lyrics are deceptively simple, sounding at times like found poetry.  “With just a guitar and vocals, they are mesmerizing in their softer-than-soft, lilting songs,” writes Amos Perrine in No Depression, who also called them “their generation’s Simon and Garfunkel.”  All Songs Considered summed it up best: “It’s so lovely to hear voices unadorned and acoustic. Honestly a night of magic.”
