Corinne Bailey Rae

I first heard Corinne on aurgasm a few months ago, and just saw via Giant Step that her new self-titled album was released yesterday (although iTunes shows it coming out back in March?). Some reviews and remarks on her talent include:

Perfectly understated and effortlessly enjoyable (…)

OK

Her voice (…) when fully unleashed, filled the room like a whisky-scented genie.

The Observer / Guardian

I especially enjoy “Like a Star”, “Enchantment”, “Put Your Records On”, “Call Me When You Get This” and “Another Rainy Day” from the album. iTunes has an acoustic version of “Put Your Records On” as well that’s really good. Apparently she was on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic a ways back and gave a killer performance – unfortunately I can’t find any aural evidence of this. If anyone else has/does, hit me up.

Here’s a couple tracks from the album, for your summer-evening listening pleasure:
