Sarah Jaffe was only twenty-two years old when her seasoned debut recording, Even Born Again, was released in 2008. Already a fixture in the fertile Denton musical landscape, her profile began to soar. Soon she was touring with artists as varied as Lou Barlow and Norah Jones, and was pushing her acoustic music into the electronic pop ether. Since then she’s had raves in Rolling Stone, made the rounds on the talk shows, collaborated with Eminem, placed her songs in a couple of films, and released a handful of absorbing albums and EPs. Her fourth full-length, Bad Baby, like each release that has preceded it, finds Jaffe again moving in creative new directions. There’s a dance-floor propulsion, and Jaffe is quick to credit the newly spacious feel to her layered pop to her many collaborators, including photographers and illustrators. Bad Baby will be released July 7th.
