It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything indie, so I apologize for that, my fellow indie music lovers. Time has gotten away from me, but on the plus side, I’ve still been finding some good music to share… I’ve just been sitting over here hoarding it all! I admit it. I’m a hoarder. I’ll be joining Hoarders Anonymous (HA) soon.

Getting back to the music, one of my current indie favorites is Agnes Obel. She is a Danish singer/songwriter who has found a modicum of success with her debut album Philharmonics throughout Europe even going quintuple platinum in her native Denmark. She’s drawn inspiration from Swedish jazz pianist Jan Johansson and her pianist mother as well as influences from PJ Harvey and Claude DeBussy. Her latest album Aventine was released in 2013 and her sound has a beautiful almost ethereal feel to it, plus it includes some of my favorite instrument: the cello. Okay, so this isn’t the music that’s going to get you head banging in your cubicle during those long hours at work, but Agnes Obel is definitely an artist you’ll want to check out. Take a moment and watch the videos below and if you like what you hear, head over to iTunes, Amazon or her offiical site and spend your monies, you won’t regret it!
