Like many people, I first became aware of Rogers when a clip of her song “Alaska” being played to Pharrell Williams during a class at NYU Tisch went viral – he essentially had no advice for her other than to keep doing what she was doing.

Maggie Rogers “Alaska”

This release (on her own imprint) collects pieces from her earlier works, including Echo and Blood Ballet as well as two songs from an earlier band Del Water Gap. It’s more folk rock, indie rock or indie folk, less produced and electronic.
