SONG: Sarah Jaffe

“Mannequin Woman”

This young singer/songwriter from Texas is a bit experimental on her latest album, The Body Wins. This song really uses some neat sounds while keeping plenty of space within it…it’s not too busy. The new music video for the song is pretty trippy! Check it out:

Cayamo: Sarah Jaffe

Sarah Jaffe has the kind of voice that doesn’t need to be loud to completely blow you out of your seat. The control she has over her vocal dynamics is mesmerizing. I saw her perform twice this week and during both sets the audience would become pin drop quiet and hang on every word….hell, every syllable! Her guitar playing proved to be just as subtle yet powerful too.

The 26 year old talked a bit about her current single “Clementine” which she originally wrote for her old band (Tomahawk Molly). She said it took her a while to come around to the tune, since she wrote it quickly as filler for a gig the same night (hence the repeating verses). Along with her own material, Jaffe covered a Justin Beiber tune and “Hang With Me” by the Swedish singer Robin.

I was left with a very memorable impression of this young talent…the quiet power of her delivery stayed with me long after the performance ended.

Daytrotter: Sarah Jaffe

I had heard a little bit of Sarah Jaffe’s music and liked it well enough, so I was interested in hearing this live session that Daytrotter posted today. I really like what I’m hearing with these three tracks! Her voice is familiar, yet unique. It’s hard for me to say she sounds like anyone else off the top of my head… it’s an intriguing sound and I’m excited to hear more from her.

Song Of The Day

Sarah Jaffe – “Clementine”

I hadn’t heard of this young Texan until recently, when we added this song into rotation at mvy. I’m not sure how I feel about this video, but I’m digging her sound for sure. She’ll play TT The Bears Place in Boston on December 5th.
