This is a lady that makes the music industry proud (or at least I think she does).
Who else is over of the classic girl singer/songwriter who cutesely (yes, that is now a word) plays her ukulele and sings ironic songs about her ironic life? (and maybe I do own a ukulele, but that doesn’t change how I feel…)

It’s music you just want to close your eyes and sway to (just don’t do this in the car please). She’s on the same label as Bon Iver (Jagjaguwar) and has brought many great artists (like Zach Condon from Beirut) on her newest record.
