Cate Le Bon

Le Bon's 2012 album CYRK may not be the Welsh songstress' first time at the rodeo, but these are the songs that should put her in the big leagues, if only blog justice was served. Her voice combats its Nico-afflicted detachment with a smokey warmth, her lyrics slyly poke fun at the super serious, her once prim-and-proper acoustic folk now runs into feedback-incited upheaval, all making for an album that's as rooted in current trends as it is in timelessness. (Catch her at Union Pool next Saturday, as her live show also comes highly recommended.)
