New Music 2014 - Part 29 - Lily & Madeleine - Fumes

It is rare that I write two posts in one day and rarer still that I try and write two concurrently but needs must. You could invoke the 'First Aid Kit' factor here, and that would be quite reasonable. Again two sisters, Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz, but this time from Indianapolis.
The comparisons are interesting - both were spotted and signed by small independent labels, in the case of Lily & Madeleine that is Asthmatic Kitty Records, and seemingly the work ethic comes with that too. They are playing at End Of The Road 2014 on Saturday and needless to say are on my must-see list (of which more soon).

This is in anticipation of the release of their second LP 'Fumes ' on 27 October in the UK. It is worth mentioning that the first, the eponymous 'Lily & Madeleine' was released only last year, 26 October, and was preceded by EP 'Weight of The Globe' just a very few months earlier. This ambition is indeed part of their mission - to release three LPs in three years.
