rachael yamagata

i first heard about rachael yamagata after hearing her song "worn me down" on the sampler cd in an old issue of cmj's new music monthly magazine (several years ago). i immediately fell in love with that song.

rachael yamagata - worn me down

i was then disappointed to find out that the reworked, album version of the song doesn't sound as good to me.

just recently, i found out that she released a new album, "elephants... teeth sinking into heart". this is a double album: disc 1 is soft and sad, it reminds me of stuff by damien rice; disc 2 has more of a 'rock' sound.

highlight tracks:
"elephants" on disc 1
"sidedish friend" on disc 2

i love her voice.
