Complete your Emilie & Ogden collection.
Alongside her harp, Ogden, Canadian singer and songwriter Emilie Kahn makes her full-length solo debut with the pixie-ish 10 000. Showcasing her agile, highly melodic indie folk and girlish vocal quality, the album may bring to mind another harp specialist, Joanna Newsome, though Kahn's arrangements, which often include drums and guitar, move her out of the parlor and into the indie clubs. It's still a delicate affair, though, and poetic, too, with lyrics that broach the personal, environmental, and supernatural.

Montreal singer/songwriter Emilie Kahn (with her harp, Ogden) has recorded her debut album, 10 000, her work best described by: The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world s existence. All these half-tones of the soul s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are. By Fernando Pessoa.
Album 10 000. Ten Thousand Lyrics. Harp, Vocals Emilie Kahn. Mastered by Ryan Morey. Release Date October 2, 2015. 10 000 Emilie & Ogden.
Emilie Kahn and her harp, Ogden, got some well-deserved attention for her reimagining of Taylor Swift’s Style, but she’ll stand on her own with her debut album, 10 000, a divinely-picked collection of operatic music. She turns out 11 tracks of wistful, easy-to-listen-to but not easy listening folk, including the previously released title track and What Happened. Kahn wears her broke heart on her sleeve for much of the album, and her lonesome lyrics shine just as bright as the pretty instrumentation she surrounds them with
