Harmonium by Vanessa Carlton
Released: Nov 2004
Label: A&M
On her second album, this 23-year-old piano whiz jettisons the Fiona Apple influences and finds a darker but more ravishing aesthetic. Songs like "White Houses" and "Half a Week Before the Winter" are lyrically elegant and musically involving while remaining accessible. You can hear her Debussy influence in "Papa."
