- Gift for the End by Mariee Sioux
Despite having one more 'e' in her name that is strictly necessary, this lady has recently collaborated with king of the warble Bonny Prince Billy and according to Phil who knows all about these things 'sells a lot of records'. Here she is on her own with a CD of really nice gentle folk musings. She has a sweet, slightly warbly voice and accompanies it with neatly picked acoustic guitar and gentle piano. Obviously the usual 70's folkies spring to mind (Joni Mitchel et al) and this has a real Laurel Canyon vibe to it. I could imagine myself, hair grown long, kaftan on sitting out on someones porch, late afternoon drifting away to this before I head down to Sunset Boulevard. It has flutes and things fluttering away in the background meshing delightfully with the gorgeous guitars. Sometimes a bit like Linda Perhacs or Diane Cluck , at others like a Joanna Newsom who has calmed down a bit. Its lovely stuff and there's enough songwriting nous in here to keep it interesting despite the very simple, sparse instrumentation. I'm very worried about the deer in the stunning photo on the inner sleeve. They are sheltering by a lake as fire tears through a nearby forest. I hope they survived.
