Emily Wolfe is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas who released her full length debut album, Director’s Notes, in February 2012. She played almost all the instruments on the album herself, and returns with the first of two EP’s, Mechanical Hands. Wolfe recorded with Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin, Heartless Bastards) and the result is an excellent set of five songs made of acoustic guitar, washes of synthy-keyboards, bursts of electric rhythms, some well played, effectively hurried indie-rock rhythms, and some memorable hooks, all put together by Wolfe’s confident, slightly Southern tinged, vocals. Mechanical Hands has an impressive range of musicality across it’s five songs. Below, in exchange for your e-mail address, download Emily’s new EP, available for a limited time.
