Description

Hear the entire session and interview: bit.ly/1pgB4xi Sarah Jaffe became known as a folk singer-songwriter making quiet acoustic songs on her 2010 debut, Suburban Nature. Over the last few years, however, the Texas native has seamlessly transitioned to pop. But this stylistic shift didn’t happen overnight. Jaffe’s previous album, The Body Wins, marked a turning point in her new musical direction, working with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen) to enliven her stormy songs with a denser sound full of industrial electronic beats and synthesizers. Jaffe's latest album, Don’t Disconnect continues that trend. Crafted with Midlake's McKenzie Smith at the helm, the record is an impeccably produced collection of dreamy synth pop that further explores her new sonic landscape. But at the heart is still Jaffe's reflective point of view, demonstrating that with the sonic reinvention comes a newfound assuredness.
