Agnes Orbel - in a word, spellbinding.

With Agnes Orbel's recent appearance at SXSW this past February, word is spreading throughout the U.S. what an amazing talent this singer/songwriter from Denmark is.

Only on the scene since 2009, her debut album Philharmonics has been very well received throughout Europe and hopefully with SXSW, that will be repeated here.

From Philharmonics comes tonight's cut Close Watch, a completely disarming track not only because of its simple yet stunning production but because Agnes Orbel has one of the most spellbinding voices heard in recent years.

I can't get enough of this song - hopefully you won't either. If you're not familiar with her, by all means check out her site. The album comes from the Berlin based PIAS label, and I don't know if there is U.S. distribution. It doesn't matter, as you can get it from her site either as a disc or download. Do it.

Can you help us out?
