PBS Catches Up with Sarah on the Road, Gets the Specs on her Writing Style

Refueled Presents a Beautiful, Raw Performance of “Clementine” (first single off Suburban Nature)

“Every time I’d pick up a guitar, I’d get frustrated,” said Sarah Jaffe said about having writer’s block, which she said came from an awareness of writing for her audience. So instead of returning to the frustration that was her guitar, she went to a pawn shop and picked up a bass and a drum set.

Although Jaffe wasn’t familiar with the instruments, practicing and recording with them gave her a new outlook on songwriting. This new view led her to create “A Sucker for Your Marketing,” a building, intense cut that features Jaffe on bass leading her band.

The video was filmed at one of Jaffe’s concerts at The Wyly Theatre in Dallas and features her full band adding piano, violin and guitar to the mix. It comes from Jaffe’s The Way Sound Leaves a Room, a CD/DVD collection of demos, alternate and live tracks.  The Way Sound Leaves a Room will be in stores this week.

Check out the performance here.

Sarah Jaffe’s CD/DVD collection titled The Way Sound Leaves A Room is out now!  The CD, a collection of demos, covers, and an acoustic version of “Clementine,” shows the growth and experimentation of Sarah and her music.  The accompanying DVD takes an extraordinary look at Sarah’s sold out Wyly Theatre show in Dallas which includes live performance footage and behind the scene snippets.

This release is meant to bridge the gap between her acclaimed full length debut Suburban Nature and her soon to be released second full length studio album – out early 2012.  But before then, fans have a chance to catch Sarah at CMJ this year.  The details will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
