LIVESound: Sky Ferreira's The Newtown Sessions

One of AwkwardSound's favorite stories of 2012 has been the long overdue arrival of pseudo-indie pop star Sky Ferreria, who originally caught AS' interest in its 2010 installment of the 25 Best Songs list with her debut single, "One," but took a few detours with her direction before successfully cocooning into her own sound with this year's solid reintroduction EP, Ghost (featuring 2012's #9 Best Song, "Everything Is Embarrassing.") When she played this year's CMJ, AS had to ask if the multi-disciplined talent could live up to the hype live, and according to a few choice reviews, she's the real deal. Don't believe them? Noisey recently sat in and recorded a take with the fresh-faced songstress as part of their brand new live studio series, The Newtown Sessions, where she performed said-#9 Song of 2012 alongside a preview of the beefed-up synth rocker, "You're Not the One," which Ferreira says will appear on her 2013 full-length. Her Coachella invite is surely already in the mail...
