If you’re on the hunt for something light today, Sophia Knapp is right up your brightly-lit street. Knapp is a New York lady who has gone solo from her band Cliffie Swan and will release an album Into the Waves on Drag City at the end of the month. The label’s Bill Callahan features on two songs on the album. I’m very much looking forward to hearing Callahan paired with Knapp as she has an airy timbre and his is a toiling gentle one so perhaps it will create a dynamic close to Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan. Plus, if the song is anything like ‘Close To Me’, it’ll be the closest the Smog man has come to ’70s funk.
Check out a video to ‘Nothing To Lose’ after the jump. There’s a bit of a Feist vibe to Knapp’s voice.
