Agnes Obel

Such haunting, beautiful melodies.  I have no idea what the lyrics mean.  I’m simply mesmerized by them. Thought you’d like a listen to Agnes Obels “Philharmonics” from her debut album by the same name. [Post image: Agnes Obel, photo from The Telegraph]

--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
