MP3 (And Mission Creek Pick) of the Day: Helene Renaut and Emily Jane White
He adds that her "complex acoustic guitar parts are trimmed with playful glockenspiel, trombone, and soft percussion. But what's most charming about the Brittany-born, San Francisco-based singer-songwriter is how she dresses up adult motifs in kids' attire. Rather than showing the singer circumventing grown-up crises, these songs offer the realization that adolescence can be damn fun, especially set against folk music that simultaneously makes you blush and squirm."
Check out the tune "Bumblebee" here, and check out Renaut and White tonight at Cafe du Nord.
