Lisa Hannigan- Daytrotter Session

If you are interested in listening to new unique music and sampling artist's you may not have heard of previously, then you should check out Daytrotter gives you exclusive, re-worked, alternative versions of old songs and unreleased tracks recorded in a rustic setting at the Horseshack in downtown Rock Island, ILL. Musicians are invited to drop by the studio and record their songs and then the sessions are posted for free on the site for your listening enjoyment. This almost sounds too good to be true, there are many well-known, as well as smaller indie-type bands posted here and it's an excellent opportunity to discover and have a (no money obligation) have a listen to any of these musicians. As of today, there are 775 sessions posted in their archives and there are shows added every week. Earlier this year I posted the session Juliana Hatfield recorded at Daytrotter and I've unearthed some great music.

A few weeks ago, my friend Sumi turned me on to an amazing talent, Lisa Hannigan. I must admit I hadn't heard any of her music, so I downloaded her debut solo album, Sea Sew and was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. She has a beautiful soothing voice (with a slight Irish accent) and the quiet whimsy and she describes her style as, "plinky plonk rock". She's previously best known for her collaborations with Damien Rice, but her solo work has garnished much praise and exposure to mainstream audiences through appearances on Leno, the Colbert Report and the BBC's Later...With Jools Holland.

The Daytrotter session with Lisa Hannigan was recorded on March 27, 2009, with Lisa and her band performing four songs from her album, Sea Sew. I've posted a rar file to download if you want the complete session for your iPod or other listening device, but if you want to sample the songs separately, scoot over to Lisa Hannigan's Daytrotter page and click the play buttons on the right hand side of the page. If you have Sea Sew already, this is a fine companion piece, a mini-concert performed in an intimate surrounding, if you haven't heard Sea Sew, this is a great place to start, then buy the album.
