We first started hearing about Danish pianist and composer Agnes Obel around South by Southwest this past March, when KCRW DJ Chris Douridas hosted a live set from Austin. We were so enamored with her debut album, Philharmonics, that we invited her back for a performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic. Her performance is simply gorgeous. And we finally learned how to pronounce her name — we expect you'll be hearing it again and again in the future.
