And, today, like so many other area performers before her (Neon Indian, Baptist Generals, Doug Burr, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, Fishboy, Ben Kweller, the Old 97's and others), she's earned the Daytrotter treatment. Daytrotter, you no doubt recall, is an intimate performance session series based out of Illinois that invites touring acts into its studio to record live, and free-to-download, tracks for fans.
No surprise here: It's a pretty great recording.
Says Daytrotter scribe Sean Moeller of Jaffe's work: "She lets herself feel the trauma and tragedies all over the table. It doesn't matter if she's stripes or solids, she gets drop-kicked by every scenario."
Did he say drop-kick? OK, then!
