Anais Mitchell, Young Man in America
2012 | Label: Wilderland Records / The Orchard

Anaïs Mitchell is a writer whose medium happens to be music. As a musician, though, her writerly achievements are undeniable: Her previous effort, 2010′s Hadestown, reconceived the myth of Orpheus, coming to life first as a touring theater production and then as a 20-track album.

Check out her and Michael's performance on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert podcast. Very impressive. That's why I'm here and downloading cuts 2 and 9.

Absolutely a great effort!

I first saw Anais at a small house concert many years ago, my has she matured as an artist and performer. This latest release is just fantastic. The imagery, beauty, pain and pleasure evoked in these songs is transporting. We had the opportunity to see her again live, what we saw was a more confident and self assured stage prescience. I have always loved those quirky voices and hers fits the bill but she also comes with great writing and sweet melodies. Get the whole release, It will definitely be on my 2012 top 10 list!

New This Week: School of Seven Bells, Trust & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

Man. There are just so many new records today. Also, I think about halfway through this, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. Trust, TRST: Behind the year's worst album cover is one of the year's best records. Super goth, in all the right ways. Where my Apoptygma Berzerk fans at? Home crying? Cool. See you there. This one is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Barry Walters goes: Trust is danceable even if you're not stuck in a K-hole. Its tempos vary… more »
