I’ve seen quite a few of these “How to get into” charts for popular, acclaimed artists like David Bowie, Radiohead, Bjork, Animal Collective etc. So here’s someone you may never have heard of.
Jenny Owen Youngs is one of my favourite singer/songwriters, and Batten The Hatches is one of my favourite albums. Here’s my guide to discovering and enjoying her discography, but you can do things in whatever order you want. If you like Regina Spektor, Florence + The Machine, and/or First Aid Kit, you’ll probably like Jenny Owen Youngs as well.
