Artist discography


Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is an American action film from 1974 starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges but it´s also an indie folk duo featuring Phil Barry and Sarah Fuerst, the two have played together in American group The Corn Fed Girls for 16 years and counting.
Phil Barry released the much pleasing solo album "Between the Carolinas" in 2011 but that was a different affair soundwise, together with Sarah Fuerst they create music that could´ve been released in the late 60´s / early 70´s.
This duo released a 4 track EP in 2015 where the music sounded like it could´ve been the soundtrack to the summer of love in 1967.
Their second release "Songs for mixed company" is  a more melancholic affair, the music might not be perfect for different kinds of moods but when you´re in that right mood for some First Aid Kit-ish folk-pop. This album is just what you need.
The best tracks are the instrumental "Vesper", the Bruce Springsteen cover "I´m on fire" and "Sad song" that sounds like Joan Baez if she was French.
