There is alot of buzz/hype surrounding Common Holly in the past few months.
So why not give a chance and listen to her full-length (is it a debut?) album called Playing House via on Solitaire Recordings.

For those not familiar to who Common Holly is, here is a blurb:
Born in New York and raised in Montreal, Common Holly (AKA Brigitte Naggar) puts unpredictable compositional elements into a singer-songwriter/folk framework, packaged in textured, eclectic electro-acoustic production. Playing House contemplates the notion that it is conscious thought and deliberate action that defines and cements maturation from child to adult.

Playing House is 9 tracks of lovely intimate folk-pop music.
Common Holly is probably the next Feist and Basia Bulat.
Predicting great things happening in 2018.

Best tracks:

  • If After All
  • Nothing
  • Lullaby (feat. Jean-Michel Blais)
  • The Desert
  • Playing House

I’d give Playing House:
