2006 saw many interesting online developments in the world of music; my favorite of these being the launch of the Daytrotter sessions. Whether widely introducing new artists to their audience or providing a new take on existing talent, the ‘trotter is on point every time.

Like many, I too have Daytrotter to thank for my introduction to the music of Brooklyn-ite Casey Dienel. It was her Daytrotter cover of Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair” that first grabbed my attention and led to my investigating her 2006 HUSH records album Wind-Up Canary. An auspicious debut, Dienel’s take on songwriting and delivery is a breath of fresh air.
