Erin Passmore

Add Date: February 21 

Artist: Erin Passmore 

Album: Downtown (EP) 

Label: Hidden Pony 

Genre: Rock, indie pop 

Comments: Downtown is the debut solo release from Erin Passmore, of the Canadian rock troupe Rah Rah. Much like her band, Passmore is quite versatile, as this 26-minute release hops from piano-based pop to jazzy folk to indie rock. Between the diversity of her tunes and her soulful voice, it's easy to see why comparisons to Feist have been tossed about. While that's admittedly a very lofty bar to set for an up-and-coming musician, Passmore seems to have the songwriting chops and the musical acumen to justify these expectations.

The whole EP is worth a listen, but start with tracks 5, 2 and 1.
