In the tradition of Joanna Newsom and Karen Dalton, who sing brilliant folk and acoustic songs with child-like flair, we add Gothenburg, Sweden artist Sea Lion. Her music is as wondrous as your daughter’s first dance recital and as tender as holding her in your arms. Coupled with lyrics that humble the assuming mind, Sea Lion is a surprising treat for the discerned listener. You can hear two songs and see her perform from her treat of a debut album, Mercy Land, which is out digitally July 25th and hard copied on September 5th via IMK Records.
(Mercy Land is available 7/25/11 from IMK Records)
