Laura Marling: I Speak Because I Can
Buy! - (Virgin)
The 2nd album from this young British singer-songwriter (she just recently turned 20) is a remarkably mature set of dark folk-pop that’s rooted in primal British folk but also thoroughly modern. More sophisticated and more intense than her promising debut, I Speak Because I Can uses fuller, more dynamic arrangements to frame her husky, world-weary vocals. Recalling at times folk-minded luminaries ranging from Fairport Convention and Nick Drake to Cat Power and Will Oldham, her bleak, emotionally powerful songs grow deeper and hit harder with every listen. 4/12/2010 - Don Yates
