Texas singer/songwriter Sarah Jaffe has done a lot of growing up since her debut album, Suburban Nature. After spending a year traveling and touring, Sarah got back in the studio with John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, The Walkmen, St. Vincent) to record her newest album, The Body Wins, which explores the side of Sarah that likes to dance and listen to hip-hop. The Body Wins has a pulse to it, moving beyond guitar folk into new jazz and electronic-infused sounds. Although The Body Wins is a product of Jaffe’s experiences since Suburban Nature, the raspy and hauntingly beautiful vocals are still ever present–but everything surrounding them is bolder and richer than before.
Sarah Jaffe scores a spot on Huffington Post’s “Music Picks for 2012” and she is in good company (Sharon Van Etten, Frank Ocean, Grizzly Bear, and more). Click here to read Cliff Chenfeld’s kind words about Sarah!
