Watch Haley Heynderickx’s Stereogum Session

Portland, Oregon-based Artist To Watch Haley Heynderickx released her debut album, I Need To Start A Garden, earlier this year. It’s a layered and muscular collection of folk songs, and Heynderickx recreates its sense of envelopment in her live performances. In the midst of their current tour, Heynderickx and her band stopped by our offices in New York City to perform for a Stereogum Session. She did three songs from I Need A Garden, “Bug Collector,” “Drinking Song,” and “Oom Sha La La” and she was backed by a trombone, a keyboard, and a drum by way of an apple box. Watch the full performance below.
