Sarah Jaffe's new album, Don't Disconnect, comes out Aug. 19

I thought I knew Sarah Jaffe, but I was wrong. With her third album, Don't Disconnect, Jaffe has proven to be much more than the rustic bedroom folksinger I'd been imagining all these years. Eschewing the strummed guitars of her early sound, Jaffe has drifted into a plugged-in pop-rock style that keys into the breezy, self-assured elements of early Magnetic Fields and YACHT. "Some People Will Tell You" issues a perfect farewell to summer: wistful and buoyant, with a tinge of melancholy and nostalgia.
