Go buy her cd. trust me, its worth alllll of your money.

I am REALLY loving her song Reason Why which she played on The OC (Second Chance) a few weeks ago.

If you go to her website you can listen to a few of her songs including Reason Why which I recommend because its brilliant, I love its lyrics.

Thank you for the advice Katie  :wink: Reason Why really reminds me of Melissa
Tallon; I don't know quite how to compare them but Rachael's music rocks!

I can't seem to find her cd. I think she sang a song in Prime, "I wish you love" and I'm totally in love with her voice right now.

I kept telling myself I should get back to this thread and see if I can reply
after just one youtube session. I found another killer good track in "Quiet" (http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=tcSM0v9XcWA&NR=1)
; lovely composition, string arrangement and Rachael's remarkable voice!

I think it was RS who described Rachael as "the Queen of acoustic emo". I
just wondered if there's an "acoustic emo princess" I don't know about  :wink:

Peace

Post by: SadAsBlue on July 09, 2008, 07:45:30 am
Lol however I would not consider her "acoustic emo" I always felt she had much more of a jazzy/blues style

Oh, yes, the new album is staggering. Gorgeous does not even begin to describe it.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And the fast rock songs are genius.

Elephants... Teeth Sinking Into Heart is incredible, perhaps the second best album of the year (behind Jenny Lewis' awesome album). The title track just breaks me and "Sunday Afternoon" is absolutely beautiful.

I apologize if there's already a thread, but oh my gosh she's amazing. Meet Me By the Water, Under My Skin, 1963, Reason Why, Be Be Your Love, Elephants, Sunday Afternoon, Duet (Ft. Ray LaMontagne), and more. She plays piano, if anyone's interested

Loves her! So good.

She has a new album in the works. She did the whole kickstarter/pledgemusic to get funds.
There have been a few insider making of videos, the new single is "Starlight," they posted the video and a list of her tour dates. Tour goes across the country and starts in October. I already got my tickets for SF!! :)

http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/rachaelyamagata/updates

Rachael was on Cayamo last year. I didn't have a great camera and well we were in the ocean so it was a bit rocky ;) But it was very cool. She is awesome and very cool.

Sunday Afternoon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZok3mBX4OY

I really want to go to the one in St. Louis, but it's 21+ :( I'm sure it would be a small crowd and I'm thinking that she will stay afterward for autographs, pictures, etc, so I'm really disappointed. About her pledge music, I really want the vinyl, but I really can't afford it. If I don't get it though, I wouldn't be heartbroken. It would be neat, however to get Elephants... Teeth Sinking Into Heart on vinyl since it's 2 discs

Yummygata haha nice pun. When I first heard "Starlight", it was completely different than expected, but in a good way. I like the video too. It's a nice difference from all the other music videos I've seen lately

Her new album is beautiful. It's out tomorrow (I already have it from Pledgemusic.com ) It's streaming now.
