Amanda King – ‘Yellow Velvet Mountain’ (mp3)
Amanda King has just released her new EP Rapids. ‘Yellow Velvet Mountain’ is the first track on the release and I was quite taken by her gentle vocals. Having been captivated by First Aid Kit earlier this year, the “produced in Stockholm” line in King’s bio, peaked my interest. King has a similar folky story telling ability but there is a lot less country in this release. Instead its a winding journey of guitar amplification and feedback looped into an atmosphere that allows King to use a tone that describes vast lanscapes and disparate climate. Really nice cover art by Danilo Stankovic adds additional charm to this fine release.
