Sarah Jaffe

Not too long ago I stumbled upon this amazing singer-songwriter from Texas through Myspace. Sarah Jaffe was born on January 29, 1986 in Lufkin, TX. She currently lives in Denton, TX, a city where the musical talent runs deep (it’s also the home of Brave Combo, Midlake, and Robert Gomez). Sarah released her Even Born Again EP in August 2008. She just finished recording her first full-length album, Suburban Nature, in December 2008 that will be released this April. Last week I managed to get my hands on Suburban Nature, that is filled with 14 amazing songs that sometimes remind me of PJ Harvey or the more recent Emily Jane White. Sarah Jaffe's vocals are so intimate and real that I can feel it in my bones. I easily dare to say that this might actually be the discovery of the year for me and that "Suburban Nature" definitely will be in the higher regions of this years top list. I can't wait to see what this year has in store for her, when someone manages to deliver so much quality with a first album, I'm sure it will all be good things. Don't miss out!

5/5

Key tracks: Better Than Nothing, Clementine, Summer Begs, Pretender
