This was Laura Veirs third album from back in 2003 and the first to reach a wider exposure before most of us checked in on the subsequent 'Carbon Glacier'. It showcases her delicious brand of beautiful voice, folky windswept songwriting and always the sense that it's very cold where she is. Now issued on lovely vinyl.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 14th March 2018
Laura works with traditional forms from the americana/folk/alt. country tradition, but gently pushes boundaries into other territories. Yet it always comes across as completely natural. At the centre is Laura's voice, unaffected and disarming, often soothing and graceful, but occasionally hinting at an aggressive streak (a sign of Laura's roots in punk rock?). Gentle country ballads, intricate acoustic guitar playing, great lyrical imagery...there's a lot to fall in love with here. You'll be right chuffed you did.
