MP3 Monday: Emily Rodgers

Last month marked the debut of local singer-songwriter Emily Rodgers on Misra Records, with Bright Day, an album recorded with her full band. Manny Theiner, reviewing it for City Paper, described the album's sound as "a shimmer similar to that of the Galaxie catalog or Mazzy Star." (See full article.)

At her subsequent CD release show at Brillobox, Rodgers' band maintained that shimmery, supportive role, only occasionally breaking loose on wild, Crazy Horsish guitar jams. The show, which also included punk vets ATS, drew a large, appreciative audience, even if those near the bar talked through much of the evening -- distracting even from the opposite end of the room.

No matter, as Rodgers is sure to mesmerize at her excellent follow-up gig: opening for Harper Simon at the Warhol Museum's Sound Series. The show, on Wed., Nov. 11, starts at 8 p.m. and costs $12. In the meantime, enjoy the free download of "This Town," from Rodgers' new album, and check out other samples at
