    Kay Kurkierewicz / WFUV

    Daughter of Swords—aka Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig—recently stopped by WFUV public radio in New York City to perform an FUV Live set of two songs from her debut album, Dawnbreaker: the title track and "Shining Woman." You can watch the performances below. She also spoke with WFUV's Kara Manning about the album; you can hear their conversation in the FUV Live session at wfuv.org.

    Dawnbreaker has just been reviewed in No Depression, whose Maeri Ferguson concludes: "Dawnbreaker is the companion we need for those long, solitary summer drives or walks where we allow our minds to wander and imagine the possibilities we’ve not yet discovered for ourselves." You can read the full review at nodepression.com.

    To pick up a copy of Dawnbreaker, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, the Daughter of Swords shop, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. You can also hear the album on Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers.
