Maryanna Sokol

Add Date: November 23 

Artist: Maryanna Sokol 

Album: Landfill 

Label: Self-released 

Genre: Rock, folk pop 

Comments: The Texas-born, NYC-based artist Maryanna Sokol has crafted a delightful debut LP of poppy folk-rock songs. Sokol cites Regina Spektor, Leonard Bernstein and The Beatles among her influences, and I think it would safe to throw Jenny Lewis, Ingrid Michaelson and Kimya Dawson in there as well. There's nothing life-changing about Landfill, but it's a really enjoyable listen--and it's an album that stands out from the glut of female singer/songwriter types crowding the musical landscape these days.

Start with "Pentameter," "Little Song" and "Two."
