Happy Valentines Day from Francesca Blanchard


It’ll make your heart grow three sizes larger…

By Fred Mills

Of all the so-called annual holidays/events we field each year as a major tastemaker media outlet, the one we traditionally hold at arm’s length is Valentines Day because, well… Valentines Day, yo. This year, however, we break protocol and present, without excessive pomp, circumstance, or fanfare, a timely ditty that not only helped thaw out our frozen hearts (hey, it’s mid-February in the mountains, ya think we’ve donned our thongs yet?) but might’ve even made ye olde editor’s Grinchy heart grow a few extra sizes.


Please check out Vermont-based chanteuse Francesca Blanchard, whose debut album, deux visions, dropped last October on the eternally innovative Cumbacha label, and who has been compared to Francoise Hardy meets Nico. Her new song is titled “My Heart,” appropriately enough, and you can check it out below. Don’t forget to share it with your significant other before the day’s over.
