And the new releases (finally) start rolling back in…
It’s not a long list, but I’ve been waiting a while to hear each one of these.
Laura Marling - Tap at My Window
Laura is only 18, a fact that simply serves to makes her songs wiser, like she is actively stretching past her age. She is a painfully shy performer, still afraid to appear in the larger London venues that her fans are begging her to play, preferring Victorian literature and quiet references to love and loss (again, beyond her years).
She has a very delicate sound and aesthetic—looking at her, she seems almost translucent; a very pale, very blond doll. She looks like Debbie Harry and has the same fragile-but-not sound.
I promise she will grow on you.
