Grace Woodroofe

Goofing around this morning, listening to WFMU's Sunken Planet, I stumbled onto this amazing Australian folk-jazz singer named Grace's sort of perfect for Saturday morning, soft and pretty, but also full of smoky shadows and ambiguity.

Here's the song that caught my attention.

Want more? This is the title track from Ms. Woodroofe's album I've Handled Myself Wrong. Nice, huh?

NPR picked the tune "Tranformer" as its "Song of the Day" at the beginning of May, saying, "While her band dispenses chaos, Woodroofe stares down the object of her devotion without blinking. That's far more unnerving than hearing her let loose."
