Sarah Jaffe Covers Leonard Cohen For The Latest Gutterth Podcast. Also: A Giveaway!

As far as local podcasts go, it's real tough to beat the

Gutterth Podcast

, which this week released its 14th installment since launching in the spring of 2009. The new one's kind of a doozie, too, featuring previously unreleased tracks from

Glen Farris


New Science Projects


The Angelus


Sabra Laval

and, oddly enough, an exclusive cover of a

Drink to Victory

song from

Dust Congress


The main subject of the podcast, however, is Sarah Jaffe--naturally, as, tomorrow night at Sons of Hermann Hall, she'll be celebrating the release of her debut full-length, Suburban Nature. For her portion of the podcast, which includes an interview, Jaffe hops on over to Gutterth HQ to perform live takes on her song "Clementine," an unreleased song called "So So Sweet" and even a gorgeous cover of Leonard Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel No. 2."

Speaking of Jaffe: In this week's paper, you can read my take on her new disc. To sum it up for ya: The disc is phenomenal, and Jaffe's a hell of a talent; the only thing holding her back at this point, perhaps, is her own nerves.

She's working on that, though, she says, and you can see the fruits of that labor tomorrow night at Sons. And maybe for free, too. The folks at Kirtland Records, who are releasing Suburban Nature, have been kind enough to pass along a free pair of tickets to tomorrow night's affair, which finds Jaffe sharing a bill with Seryn, who she recently told me was her "new favorite band in Denton." Want the free passes? Be the first to email me right now with the words "Nature Calls" in the subject line and they're yours. Good luck!
