iTunes Review

Denton, Texas–based Sarah Jaffe has made a maturing stylistic jump with her second album, 2012's The Body Wins. Where her debut album, Suburban Nature, featured an acoustic folk singer finding her way through personal pain, The Body Wins explores new textures, with the piano-based "The Way Sound Leaves a Room" and the piano, strings, and woodwinds of "Fangs" bringing a depth of sound that's pure and powerful. "Fangs," in particular, builds up a choir of voices to make its impact rich and defined. "Glorified High" throws together a distorted beat and ominous synths to lead the way to a grand but ironic celebratory chorus. "Mannequin Woman" starts with a ticking piano counting down the seconds until the sound opens to sweeping vistas that support an early-'80s pop vibe and lyrics that mention her friends and counselor. The confessional writing makes for an intense closeup, but it's given room to breathe with production by John Congleton that transforms Jaffe into an artist with a modern edge. 

Customer Reviews

Sensually beautiful

Her voice is Hauntingly Beautiful....
She captives your mind, yet shes so sensual like a feather upon your skin but touches your soul from within.
Once again you deliver music for the soul beautifully done my Temptress..
Beautifully done....Shug.

lovelovelove her and her lyrics

Are still just as raw, and I'm still an avid fan. It is a little more ambient and a little more produced and less simple, more dark... much heavier... but as we get older, we learn, and love, and things feel heavier at times. I love her words, I love growing with her albums. Hooray for Sarah Jaffe, hooray for her art. Buy her album, she puts her soul and expression into her music. I would have to say my favorite song is Sucker for Your Marketing. I'm a little disappointed by the production of it, but that's because I love the rawness of it in the EP, and the live version was GORGEOUS. My favorite songs in this album are her least produced, the ones of just mostly her and her voice and her piano... which were Halfway Right and Hooray for Love. YET her voice doesn't need an echo or any ambience!!! She's got such a wonderful voice. The other songs distract from her voice. However, she's still a masterpiece writer, musician and singer. I do miss her more simple music... and I'd like to here these live, as the productions don't do her raw voice the justice they deserve.


SO glad this if finally out! Yes, it's different from her earlier works.... but it's GREATNESS!! SO happy to see this young woman grow in her art/music. She's come a long way in the past 10 years! EPIC music! Foggy Field is the simplest yet most "lingering in my brain" song. Absolutely EPIC!

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A singer/songwriter with electro-pop ambitions, soulful Texas crooner Sarah Jaffe weaves stark folk-pop narratives whose gentle melodies belie the deeper, dancefloor-ready confectioner within. On the title track of her debut EP, Jaffe sang "I'm testament to old and new," which served as a nice introduction to the singer/songwriter's timeworn folk side. Her tart, at times bluesy voice had the sepia tint of dustbowl troubadours of yore and the sad crack and throb of a '70s confessional folkie. Delicate...
