On this edition of Audiography we feature reviews from the latest releases by Sleepy Sun, post metal stalwarts Pelican, M. Ward, and blues rockers Alabama Shakes. Also featured is a conversation with singer-songwriter Laura Pergolizzi, or LP. After releasing a couple albums in the early aughts, Pergolizzi made her way through the industry working as a songwriter, writing hits for acts like Rihanna, the Backstreet Boys, and Heidi Montag. Her music has appeared in hit television shows such as The Hills and The Voice and perhaps most famously in a Citi Bank commercial. With a new contract with Warner Bros, LP is re-emerging as an artist. We caught up with her a few days before she headed to Austin, TX for the 2012 SXSW festival.
