Dan Snaith, a.k.a. Caribou, has moved freely between musical aesthetics on each of his previous records, but on his fifth studio release, Our Love, he's fine-tuned and settled into a warmer, more personal approach.

On his third visit to KCRW, Snaith performed songs off his newest and perhaps best album to date, including the captivating title track.

It had been been nearly six years since Jenny Lewis released a solo album. For The Voyager, the former Rilo Kiley singer turned to Ryan Adams as her "spirit guide" in the studio. The two combined their specialties to create a sophisticated, Americana-driven pop sound with touches of folk and, as always, Lewis' smart and personal lyrics. Here, she performs "She's Not Me" at Los Angeles' Apogee Studios.

Damien Rice wears his heart on his sleeve. His new album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, is rife with vulnerability and reflections on universal themes — never more effectively than in "It Takes A Lot To Know A Man."

Nashville singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko was catapulted to fame when pop superstar Rihanna recorded his song "Stay" and then performed it with him at the Grammys. Now, with the release of his debut album Time, Ekko is showcasing the talent that has had so many big-name acts clamoring to work with him.

During Ekko's recent visit to a Sonos Studio pop-up set in New York City, KCRW captured this live version of "Stay."
