Recommended first album:
2010—Play It Again Sam

Daniel Matz—beat (3, 7, 8)
A collection of wonderful, lo-fi folkish pop. Surprising powerful and lively and unforgettable given its overall quiet feel. Favourite tracks are "Riverside" and "Philharmonics", but I really like the whole album. One of my favourites of the year. (Neile)<
2013—Play It Again Sam
Agnes Obel—vocals, piano, rhythms
Mika Posen—violin, viola
A good follow-up to her lovely debut album. (Marion)
