Mp3 of the Week: Sarah Rabdau

LISTEN: Sarah Rabdau, "Jackie" (mp3)

“That was good, right?” utters drummer Matt Graber in the final seconds of this brand-spanking-new MP3 from Sarah Rabdau and Self-Employed Assassins. Yes, Matt, it’s very very good. If you know the sweetly voiced Rabdau, you’re likely fond of the way her wispily crisp vocal plays so nicely with an assortment of hazy textures, moody moods, and of course her powerful piano chops. Since she’s teamed up with Graber and remonikered her efforts, though, things have changed. A piano and drums set-up could easily veer into maudlin, but here, Rabdau and Graber conjure something closer to a lost Lauper song pounded out in a pub. Of course, you won’t be able to hear those results until their homonymous debut drops at Lizard Lounge on January 23. In the meantime, you can catch Sarah with Ad Frank at Great Scott this Sunday along with Nassy, Aloud, and Hallelujah the Hills, and grab “Jackie” above.
