Song of the Day - June 21, 2006

I am not a fan of outsourcing, but it is a sad fact of life in our global economy. However, I will tolerate it in the musical arena. Imagine Americana from Sweden if you can, and you will have Amandine. Strongly reminiscent of Neil Young, Amandine has created a beautiful, melancholy sound on their EP Leave Out the Sad Parts. The piano intro had me hooked from the beginning on "Between What He's Saying and What He Regrets." Olof Gidlof is the lead vocalist and he does a beautiful job creating a lonesome sound, without the least bit of a Swedish accent, while the rest of the band excels at producing Americana tunes as if they were raised in the American Southwest.
