I discovered Amber Rubarth from last year’s SXSW offerings. I was surprised to hear her voice under a different name, but since seeing The Paper Raincoat play with Joey Ryan at The Hotel Cafe, I think I may be an ever bigger fan of this project Amber has with fellow Brooklynite Alex Wong. Their live version of “Rewind” should not be missed!
14. “Manhattan” – MoZella
I’m just so excited that she finally put this full length CD,Belle Isle, I had to celebrate!
15. “Moving Backwards” – Ben Rector
This song moved me. end of story.
I’ve been looking for an excuse to showcase this song since I saw Erin play with Landon Pigg at The Troubadour several months ago. This was a good a place as any.
17. “Followed the Waves” – Melissa Auf der Maur
A music-loving friend turned me on to the former Hole bassist’s solo project. This friend is very wise.
