      A quality album by talented artists

      Farewell Good Night's Sleep is the debut album by Icelandic artist Lay Low and other musicians who lend a helping hand. Working my way through the list of albums from this year's Glastonbury acts there are a surprising amount of UK bands that majorly suck. Despite being Icelandic/Sri Lankan the singer Lovisa was actually born in London - so maybe we can claim her, after all Iceland seems to have far too much talent for a nation of its size!

      This is acoustic music, a mixture of country and blues but unlike so many of her contemporaries, she manages to pull it off with a soft, melodic and slightly husky voice that doesn't sound too different from Malvina Reynolds', she plays acoustic guitar throughout the album but is also joined by numerous other musicians most notably Magnus Kristinsson who also produced the album, he adds some absolutely awesome slide guitar to various tracks.

      The tracks are gentle and cheery with some intricate guitar work to back up those wonderful vocals. Lyrically the album is a bit poetic and soft but it's quirky at times and will definitely appeal to girls in the way that Norah Jones did.

      I think this is a top album and recommend you give it a listen and buy it!
