Chesapeake by Rachael Yamagata
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Frankenfish
Three albums in, Rachael Yamagata knows what works for her: pensive, emotive lyrics that explore the nooks and crannies of love; an intrepid sense of style that's grounded in decades of singer-songwriter tradition; and, especially, husky vocals as sexy and smoky as a tumbler of scotch. The range of aesthetic moods is especially wide here, moving effortlessly from the dark, sultry and surfy rock of the fabulous "Starlight" to the Indigo Girlish, sunlit coffee-shop pop of "Saturday Morning" to the twangy alt-country of "Miles on a Car." It's a carefully crafted album by a thoughtful artist.
