SARAH JAFFE, SECRET COLOURS, RYAN STIVELY
(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) I'd originally pegged Sarah Jaffe as a songslinger in the folky, alt-country vein—and a damn good one at that—but her exceptional new album The Body Wins reveals an altogether new side: a versatile, modern musician whose songs are no less heartfelt even after she's kicked off the dust to reveal something much sleeker.
