"We must pick up some secret frequency / that only true hearts can hear."

Despite a sore throat and a few too many false starts on my part, the wonderful Madeline Ava phones it in Knoxville, TN. Despite less than a year of playing music, Madeline's songs represent everything I love and find inspiring about lo-fi: tender, daringly honest, simple, and of course catchy and fun. Just a girl and her uke, she's already recorded two albums plus a brave song-for-song cover of Neutral Milk Hotel's 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea'. Comparisons to Kimya Dawson and maybe Erin Tobey are inevitable, but not off-base anyway. We could use more of all three of 'em!
