SATURDAY & SUNDAY
“Their rustic and winsome ways belie a modern sensibility and often a sultry suggestiveness.” – KEXP
“My and Bubba set up off stage in front of a row of couches sans microphones and amps and entertained the 20 or so of us who came. It’s so lovely to hear voices unadorned and acoustic. Honestly a night of magic.” – All Songs Considered
“My bubba is two young women […] who sound like their generation’s Simon and Garfunkel. With just a guitar and vocals, they are mesmerizing in their softer-than-soft, lilting songs […]. Their music or delivery did not change whether the the audience was made up of 20 or 500 people. And the audiences’ reaction – hushed silence – never changed.” – Amos Perrine, No Depression
Scandinavian folk duo My Bubba make soft, soulful, sensual music that’s as playful as it is powerful. Together, My Larsdotter and Bubba Tomasdottir have toured with Damien Rice, co-written music with Matthew E. White, recorded with Noah Georgeson and stepped on Bryan Adams’ toes. Literally.
My Bubba’s new album, Big Bad Good, was recorded with Shahzad Ismaily (Will Oldham, Jolie Holland) at his Brooklyn studio, Figure 8 Recording. The songs were recorded as they were written, and most of the takes are among the first times the songs were ever sung – allowing the record to portray the immediate rawness and intimacy of a newborn song. It was released on Cash Only April 15th 2016.
