I put Mirel Wagner’s 2014 album, When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day, on hold at the library many months ago. I put it on hold pretty much because it was a singer-songwriter and and because it was Sub Pop records.
Today, I received the cd from the library, only vaguely remembering what it was and remembering I wanted to hear it.
Little did I know that the singer-songwriter is from my motherland of Finland, from Espoo no less (I’ve been there!) and was born in Ethiopia.
Pleased to meet you, Mirel Wagner. This could be the ending of a beautiful friendship…
