RIYL: Princess Chelsea, Isobel Campbell, Marisa Nadler

Label: Sub Pop

It’s been a busy year for English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marika Hackman.  Scooped up by a new label, Hackman took the opportunity to reinvent herself and shed her folkier leanings from her first two records.  It’s a scary move for any artist with a growing fanbase, but with the support of Sub Pop Records, Hackman has found a new voice all her own. Newest single Boyfriend is certainly a pop tune, but Marika’s got plenty of growl and grit to turn it into something interesting, steering the chord progressions just off kilter and keeping plenty of space present to build the mood.  It shimmers, it rocks and it’s got enough harmony to cull your sweet tooth.

While supplies last, Sub Pop’s including a 7″ in with the orange vinyl ‘loser edition’ package.  Not too shabby for $18, lads.  Dig the new music video for Boyfriend below and make way for the second act of Marika Hackman.
