For the real music lovers out there, I have a private email list. I send these emails out once a day. They contain great New Music, Videos, Opinion and a link to new Radio Vickers blog posts. The people on the list are all blind-copied so there are no privacy issues. If you'd like to be added to the list and receive these private postings, just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and it shall be done.
This is Radio Vickers in the new Radio Vickers format. These are just songs I’m listening to at the moment. It might be a Finnish Thrash Metal song, a pop song or some piece of jazz. And you can listen along. I also have three bands, there videos are scatter hither and yon around my site. If you could give one or two of them and eye and an ear, I’d be ever so grateful.

FIRST AID KIT
FIRST AID KIT
First Aid Kit is duo consisting of two sisters, Johanna and Klara Sodenberg, from
sound like they grew up in Stockholm,
For Thursday night's concert, they also had a guy on drums who sang harmonies as
well. Johanna plays guitar and sings most of the leads while her sister
sings harmony and plays keyboards. Vocal harmonies can be amazing things.
They are a perfect example of a situation where the whole is far greater than
the sum of it's parts. Single voices can be huge, powerful things.
Singers like Bjork and Sinead O'Conner don't need to harmonize with
anyone. They can fill up a big space all by themselves. Harmony is
a different thing all together. Something quite magical happens when two
or more voices interact to create a harmony. With any
harmony its a matter of finding two or more melodic lines that make this
new thing happen. Kind of like mixing yellow and blue to get
green. The sisters in First Aid Kit create vocal harmonies that
are beautiful and transcendent. An enormous pleasure to hear live.
