If you’ve never heard of the amazing vocalist and songwriter Rachael Yamagata, you should stop what you’re doing and immediately download her first album. If you have heard of her, then you’re one of the many who have been waiting (and waiting and waiting) for some new songs. In which case, today is your lucky day….
Rachael’s music is moody, poetic, and soulful, and her first single, Elephants, off the slowly releasing album (the first part of which comes out today), is a true taste of this side of her. For those of you needing something a bit more upbeat, listen to her other single, Sidedish Friend, on her myspace page to get your fix.
