lederhosen who?

Krista Muir has been a mainstay on the Montreal music scene for more than a decade now. She’s probably best known for her off-the-wall, food-obsessed, fashionista Teutonic alter-ego Lederhosen Lucil, a blonde-braided German uber-hostess who’s been known to bust out songs that sound like a cooking show set to Casio keyboard sample tunes. But of late, we’ve been getting a chance to see the woman under the wig and hosen; Muir has just released an album under her own name called Accidental Railway, and it’s full of tender songwriting gems.

This sweet video for the track Leave Alight, from the new album, was directed by Kara Blake and features Muir’s skills on the baritone ukelele. It’s kind of a masterpiece of simplicity, IMHO.

And oh, just for the heck of it, here is a video for Lederhosen Lucil’s Semi-Sweet after the cut.
