If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s trolling the internet for new music.
I was checking out the Twitter feed of a music intern from Riot Act Media when I came across an @reply that stopped me in my tracks. I happened to stumble upon the website of a songwriter from San Francisco named Chloe who combines folksey sentimentality and mournful cello lines with light-as-air lyricism.
Her newest album, Puppeteer (released January 2011) was produced by Chris Chu of the Morning Benders, so you know it’s got some musical chutzpah behind it.
Here’s my favourite track off the album, Apollo & Daphne which you can pick up from Bandcamp for a buck.
RIYL: Snowblink, Maria Taylor
