Lily & Madeleine - The Weight of the Globe (2013)

YouTube senzacija. Ovaj put s pravom. Komorni porculanski pop tinejdžerica (15 i 18 godina), sestara Jurkiewicz.


Written over the course of their summer vacation and recorded in three days, The Weight of the Globe is a musical snapshot by teenaged sisters Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz of a pivotal moment in their lives—turning their backs on the comforts of the past to step into an uncertain future.
The recording project that became the Weight EP started with producer Paul Mahern, who’d fallen in love with the duo’s YouTube videos, acoustic covers of a handful of favorite songs, and immediately got in touch to invite the sisters into the studio. Lily & Madeleine started writing their first original tunes over summer vacation, and Paul introduced them to their bassist and songwriting partner Kenny Childers.  The response to their first original song was immediate:  the YouTube video racked up a quarter of a million views, and the sisters sold out the first two shows they ever played.
Each song on The Weight of the Globe was written as a discrete, self-contained folk-pop statement, but thanks to the real-time circumstances of recording it, the EP holds together like a collection of interconnected short stories. Taken as a whole, the songs chart a journey from love to disillusionment to heartbreak. - asthmatickitty.com/

Indianapolis sister duo Lily & Madeleine released debut EP The Weight of the Globetoday.The five-song EP is currently available digitally via bandcamp and is a treat for all listeners. Those who have been enjoying the teaser videos featuring minimal instrumentation will have their ears in happy overload upon hearing the finished accompaniment.
Often compared to harmonizing vocal groups like Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit, and Alela Diana & Alina Hardin, Lily & Madeleine have be captivating listeners with their soft yet dignified voices and dual-part harmonies. The fresh arrangements are carefully carved to keep the focus on the voices while adding a warmth to the song structures. Unlike the teaser videos, are surprisingly more rock arrangements such as “These Great Things” and “Tired” which have a sort of Margot & the Nuclear So & So’s vibe… which I like very much. While every song is stellar and worth continuous listens, the standout track for me would be “Back to the River”. The song does an excellent job of using light and varied accompaniment and a great use of silence to break up verses and add heart-renching dramatic affect.
Recorded and produced by Paul Mahern at White Arc Studios, the album features an impressive listing of assistance and accompaniment including Kenny Childers (The Gentleman Caller, Mysteries of Life, Velo Deluxe), Matt Tobey (Matty Pop Chart, Good Luck, Memory Map, Kimya Dawson), Shannon Hayden and more. The strong young songwriters are well on their way toward big things, already turning heads of Midwest new music sources such as My Old Kentucky Blog and Thoughts on Tracks - hipsterspinster.wordpress.com/
