Lay Low, "By and By"

Spinner.com is currently my go-to source for discovering new music (they stream new albums from a variety of genres, but focus mostly on indie rock/pop, electronica, and folk/country). This week, they have the new album, Farewell Good Night's Sleep from Icelandic singer-songwriter Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir, who goes by the stage name Lay Low. From her MySpace page:
When asked about influences for the new album, Lovísa talks a lot about the honky tonk era from 1950–1960 as well as specific artists who have influenced her - Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Ernest Tubb, Kitty Wells, Lefty Frizzell, Hank Williams Sr., Red Foley, Loretta Lynn, Hank Lochlin, Skeeter Davis and The Carter Family. In general she listens to a great deal of country, roots and old gospel, together with a lot of new indie bands.
Here's the video for the song, "By and By":
