My Bubba and Mi: Wild & You


Published February 1, 2013

‘Wild & You,’ the latest output from Swedish/Icelandic bluegrass duo My Bubba and Mi, takes the form of a five-track EP consisting of their trademark old-timey-with-a-dash-of-sugar stuff. Their saccharine voices and twanging strings give it a down to earth vibe. With many more of the tracks, the album could verge on too-too sweet, but at this length it is manageable.
If you shut your eyes and listen, you can travel to a place which probably only exists in popular clichés of the American south: Wind stirring tall grass, an old jalopy put-putting down the road and a toothless hillbilly sweeping his porch in low, slanting sunlight. Clichéd imagery and all, the album nonetheless makes for a good listen.
