The Danish-born Berlin-based singer-songwriter Agnes Caroline Thaarup Obel - artist name Agnes Obel - released the highly acclaimed debut album Philharmonics last year. It is so far only out in Europe - and a platinum album in France.

Agnes produced and performed all the songs herself. The inspiration for her piano-based music is rather eclectic, ranging from the Swedish folk-jazz artist Jan Johansson to American crooner Roy Orbison and British trip hopsters Portishead.

Check out the lovely tune Riverside - repackaged by the talented electronic Danish producer duo Lulu Rouge.
