Jessica Lea Mayfield "With Blasphemy So Heartfelt" (2008)

This is one of my favorite debuts from recent years.  Basically a duo album, JLM sings while the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach overdubs all instruments, JLM's artistic voice belies her young age.  While there's clearly an indie rock sensibility to the record, JLM's childhood in her family's bluegrass band subtly informs the music with a variety of traditional elements.
