My Morning Download: “Falling In Love Again” by Rachael Yamagata


Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata is out on tour and is playing the First Unitarian Church on Friday, December 7th. She’s got a gorgeous new six song EP out called Heavyweight that she’s selling at her shows and on her web site here. There are few confessional singer-songwriters who are as good as Yamagata at capturing the essence of broken hearts and finding redemption in lost love. Her singing on this record is as emotionally intense as ever, the piano playing as lyrical as her story telling and the string arrangements on the EP are stunning. The EP is out on her own Frankenfish Records, and she gets some help from Liz Phair and Madi Diaz on the song “Has It Happened Yet.” Rachael’s made yet another excellent collection of songs and in the context of the singer-songwriter continuum Heavyweight</em> is about as blue as Joni Mitchell’s Blue can get. Below, download “Falling In Love Again.”
