Rachael Yamagata can croon about lost love with the best of 'em. Her dark and painful folk songs come to vibrant life over the course of Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart. It's slow, somber and sultry—just how you'd expect a sonic sliver of heartbreak to be.
Nevertheless, Rachael's musical taste is quite eclectic. She opened up her iTunes and gave ARTISTdirect.com an exclusive look inside.
Check out what Rachael's spinning below, catch her on tour when she comes to your town this spring and don't forget to listen to Elephants.
