Laura Marling: Once I Was An Eagle
Buy! - (Ribbon/Domino)
This British singer-songwriter’s fourth album is a masterful set of dark, intimate folk-pop. The album begins with a sparse-sounding, raga-influenced song suite featuring some intricate acoustic guitar work from Marling along with cello and percussion. As the album goes on, more instrumentation is gradually added, and while the accompaniment is often gorgeous, the focus is rightfully on Marling’s husky, elastic vocals, spellbinding melodies and probing, sometimes cutting lyrics. 5/24/2013 - Don Yates
