Rachael Yamagata–If you read this, know that I’d Heavily Consider Going Lesbian for You.

Rachael Yamagata

Rachael Yamagata, that eye-ravishingly beautiful, whiskey-voiced vixen, has been amongst my favorites since first I heard her in 2005. Her combination of heartrending vocals, thoughtfully, sensitively, achingly sensual lyricism and tiny bit of eccentricity ushered me uncomplainingly into love at first listen. While Happenstance, her 2005 effort, remains a true gem whose glitter is unchallenged by similar talent that’s arrived upon the scene since its release (“Reason Why,” “Ode To,” and a later release, “Would You Please” will always be a holy trifecta of good in my book), her new album, Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart, is nothing short of a masterpiece. I’ve been obsessively listening to it (read: forcing everyone around me with ears to listen to it, too!), since I received my preorder about 3 weeks ago. I highly, highly encourage you to check it out. Listen to “Sunday Morning” and “Over and Over.” Fuck. Or just the whole thing, over and over again. It’s worth it–truly.

H’anywhay, after a little bit of internet sleuthing today I found another song of hers titled “Woman,” which doesn’t seem to appear on any album I’ve purchased before this. In the interest of spreading around a good thing, here. Just listen, and see if you don’t fall in love, too.

\”Woman,\” by the Inimitable Rachael Yamagata

    You’re so luck you’re going to see Rachael! I wish I’d bought tickets. Maybe next time around… Enjoy! Maybe even let me know how it was!
