For someone with a career approaching its eighth anniversary, Sarah Jaffe has accomplished a great deal in a relatively short time. With her self-released EP, 2008’s Even Born Again, Jaffe established her credentials as a powerful acoustic Folk artist, which were reinforced after her signing to Kirtland and her debut full-length, Suburban Nature. But her 2011 EP, The Way Sound Leaves a Room, found Jaffe moving to a more eclectic orchestral/Electronic direction — an exploration that continued on 2012’s The Body Wins and last year’s Don’t Disconnect (she even provided vocals for a track on Eminem’s Marshall Mathers 2 album, as well as Jon Brion’s musical bed for the Monsters University short, The Blue Umbrella). If you’re looking for something new, Sarah Jaffe has that amazement you ordered.
