It’s a new year, and even though we’re taking a few weeks away from the show (we’ll re-post an oldie next week), we wanted to thank Nicole for recommending Denmark’s Agnes Obel. Her debut album, Philharmonics, was released in 2010, and earned critical and commercial success in Europe, as well as a number of awards in her native land.

Though we’re most used to singer-songwriters lugging around a guitar, Obel’s fragile voice is simply haunting when matched with the sombre piano notes that appear to be her signature. Tori Amos or Sarah Slean fans will probably enjoy, but everyone should check out the video for Riverside on a cold, January day…
