Songs III: Bird on the Water
SOUNDS LIKE A female Devendra Banhart: hushed, haunting, otherworldly.
FUN FACT She’ll play some tour dates with Peter Bjorn and John.
VERDICT Gorgeously strange.
So Much More
SOUNDS LIKE Early Paul Simon/Tracy Chapman: folky, lyrical, melodic.
FUN FACT John Mayer is a famous (and vocal) fan.
VERDICT Big talent with a young face and an old soul.
SOUNDS LIKE Lily Allen unplugged: saucy, smart, and a little pissed.
FUN FACT She’s already a bona fide star in her native U.K.
VERDICT There’s room to grow, but we like it so far.
