Alex Winston - "Choice Notes" MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

Detroit's Alex Winston may live in the indie world of the Arcade Fire, Lykke Li, and Feist in terms of immediate musical compatriots, but Winston is also a classically trained opera singer. That's immediately from her expansive vocal range, as well as her expertise with subtle shadings and textures, all contained within a seemingly simple little pop ditty. Winston is releasing the single "Choice Notes" -- so perfectly titled -- today as a double A-side limited edition 7-inch with "Medicine". If you like what you hear, head on over to Heavy Roc Music where they are offering up The Basement EP as a free download in exchange for your email address.

As an added treat, check out Winston's live cover of Mumford and Sons' "White Blank Page."

Indie pop in 2009 was about all young energy and autumnal melancholy, about the rush you feel when you first hear an exciting new band, and the bittersweet feeling you get when your favorite band calls it quits.
