Sarah Jaffe

Who the sweet fuck is Sarah Jaffe? On her mesmerizing third album, The Body Wins, she doesn’t seem too concerned with easy answers—only with dizzying studio finesse and bitch-slapping eclecticism. “Paul” is a slow-burning quiet storm of orchestral flourishes; the title track layers fragments of tribal rhythms, jazz piano, funky brass stabs and gurgling electronics. She outdoes herself with the spooky, sultry “Hooray for Love,” which sounds like Norah Jones during a sonic hangover.
