Singer-songwriter Rachel Garlin's new release Mondegreens (April 3) plays like a love letter to today’s uncertain times, each song evoking a blend of heartache and hope, social reflection and self-discovery. 

At the center of Mondegreens are Garlin’s lyrics—image-rich and literary, subtle and surprising—making each song its own snow-globe story that stirs and settles. With nine originals, plus a not-to-be-missed cover of Don Henley’s anthem “Boys of Summer,” Mondegreens showcases producer Julie Wolf’s nuanced musical sensibilities and talent for working with singer-songwriters; her production palette intensifies, without overdoing, the depths of meaning in Garlin’s vivid storytelling.
