Picking through the Pawn Shop

Ten Cent Poetry

Picking through the Pawn Shop

Unsigned

Picking through the Pawn Shop is the debut full length of one of our newest singer-songwriters Chelsea Lynn La Bate, or Ten Cent Poetry.  It’s a great first release for her but there is really nothing new brought to the table that we haven’t had permeate the genre for the last ten years.  Her vocals definitely channel the sounds of acts like Feist (though slightly more nasally), and the melodic violin and understated percussion lend a quality backup to her vocals and lyrical content.  La Bate hails from that anti-folk hotspot of New York and her locale definitely lends an air of polish and expertise one acquires from exposure to the best of their genre.  Picking through the Pawn Shop is a good first release for a relatively unknown artist and a great addition to the library for a fan of the genre.

Released:  4/15/2011
