Laura Veirs: Year of Meteors
Buy! - (Nonesuch)
This Seattle singer-songwriter considers her fifth album to be her “road record”: All of the songs are about movement of some sort or another, and all of them were written while she was on tour last year. Produced by band member Tucker Martine, the album is more lively and dynamic than 2004’s austere Carbon Glacier, making good use of her excellent band the Tortured Souls, who combine various guitars, keyboards, percussion, viola (courtesy of guest musician Eyvind Kang) and electronics for a sound that could be described as avant-garde folk-pop. Always an evocative songwriter, Veirs has come up with some of her most memorable songs to date. 7/21/2005 - Don Yates
