About a year ago, I had to give Holly Miranda a Babewatch shout-out, because she not only carried the range and songwriting talent that’s hard to find within mainstream “pop”, but also because she has that non-egotistical and hot edge that translates to marketability.  Kanye West took to his blog a year ago to sing her praises and TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek took charge of the production behind her debut album, The Magician’s Private Library, out tomorrow February 23rd under XL Recordings.  She’s a fresh take on Mazzy Star and Cat Power, with some bite.  Check out an amazing cover of Tool’s “AEnema” and download the MP3 here, thanks to Lizzyville.

Holly Miranda has teamed up with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to help produce her first album (release date TBD) – some tracks available on her myspace page.  Her vocals will conjur up comparisons to Cat Power, her music feels like the Portishead we loved from the days of “Dummy”, and although her experimental sound will tap into a niche crowd, it’s safe to say that crowd will be pleased.

It’s like Mazzy Star reincarnated.
