MP3 Monday: Meaghan Smith, Audrye Sessions

Our first songs comes from Meaghan Smith, a singer/songwriter hailing from Nova Scotia of all places. Her debut EP The Cricket's Quartet is out now on iTunes, a classic, soulful record reminiscent of orchestral pop music from the 20s and 30s. On "Little Love," Meaghan's smooth, sultry voice is backed by a full band (horns, keys, bass, guitar, flute, etc.) and even some turntable scratches for a an extra kick. Take a listen; actually, just go ahead and keep it.

Last, but certainly not least, we have an Elliot Smith cover performed by alt-rock band Audrye Sessions. Their self-titled debut EP is available at iTunes and in stores, with a full-length album due out in February of next year. The hauntingly beautiful atmosphere of "Waltz #2" makes it a cover worth getting your hands (or ears) on, especially because you won't find this on the EP.
