Rachael Yamagata-Chesapeake

Posted December 10, 2011 By admin

After a three year absence from the music scene, Rachael Yamagata is back with a new album title “Chesapeake“. While her previous album “Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart” was a somber, heartbreaking album, this album is a little more upbeat. It starts out with a bang in the form of Even If I Don’t, a song about a failed relationship that she can’t go back to no matter how much she wants to. The next track, Starlight, has a really cool hard bass line and counteracts it with really sensitive lyrics about the need for another person and wondering if the feeling is mutual. From there, the rest of the album is a mix of solid music, from upbeat to sad to ballads. This may not be my favorite album of hers (that goes to “Elephants”), but it’s probably her most accessible and consistent, and should appeal to a wide variety of people (and hopefully make some new fans along the way).

Rachael Yamagata- Pledge Music project

Posted October 5, 2011 By admin

I’m disappointed to say I haven’t posted about this album yet, but better late than never I suppose. Rachael is one of my favorite musicians and an amazing songwriter. She has a new album coming out soon entitled Chesapeake. She is releasing the album independently with the help of Pledge Music, where fans can pledge money towards the album and get cool packages in the process. I’ve personally pledged 60 dollars, which would get me the signed special edition vinyl as well as a signed copy of original song sketches. So very unique and in some cases one of a kind gifts. A lot of the pledge packages are gone as it is rather late in the process, but there are some really cool ones left. Be sure to check here to see if there’s anything you want, or you can just donate 10 dollars and get the digital album, every little bit helps. Every package comes with a free copy of the digital album, in case you were wondering whether to get one of the packages that wasn’t a cd or vinyl. The samples of songs from the album are exclusive to pledgers, so I won’t post them here, but here are a few songs that will introduce you to her music if you aren’t already familiar.
