Agnes Obel – “Between the Bars” (Elliott Smith Cover)

I can’t resist an Elliott Smith cover. And what a lovely rendition of “Between the Bars” by songstress Agnes Obel. Born and raised in Denmark, she now lives in Berlin and recently made her US debut at SXSW this year. Her simple and very beautiful voice reminds me of other emerging songbirds like Lia Ices and Laura Viers. Her debut album Philharmonics, was released earlier this year to much critical acclaim. Check it out the track “Riverside” and you’ll see what I mean.
