This week’s podcast spotlights local singer-songwriter Emily Jane White
, on the heels of the US release of her second album, Victorian America
, by Milan Records
. 2007’s Dark Undercoat
introduced White’s powerful lyrics and commanding voice, and its bewitching folk-rock sound generated widespread critical acclaim. Things are a little less sparse this time around, as Emily and her band have crafted some wonderful string arrangements that increase the songs’ intrinsic emotional weight. The new works feel more ambitious, too, an exciting sign of continued growth by one of our favorite local artists.
