Carla Morrison is iTunes’ Darling of the Week

Carla Morrison’s one-girl band is comprised of a Boss XL20 loops pedal, a tambourine, a melodic guitar, a Casio vintage keyboard and a mic. You couldn’t tell from the sweet, minimalistic, melancholic “Esta soledad,” the song of the week at iTunes Latino. The Mexican-born singer has often been compared to Feist and Joanna Newsom, and her voice carries hints of Lafourcade – if only Natalia indulged in songs where she never laughed at herself, but rather steeped her anger and ennui in guitar chords.

Download “Esta soledad” from iTunes this week, for free, and check out Carla’s recently released EP, Aprendiendo a Aprender. Visit her MySpace here, or read her blog.
