I saw this beautiful lady open for Mirah back in 2007. I hadn't heard of her before and it was in a venue with a bar in the back. Needless to say, it was a bit difficult to hear her... Almost 10 years later, I was thinking about that day and decided to really listen to Laura Veirs. Her albums are currently on loop... it's been a week.
Funny how i heard recently again 'Galaxies'; in the sfie movie Coherence (too!) !... remembered me immediately a familiar voice i knew from the past and... bingo, at the end of the credits, was Laura Veirs name :) ..and so i immediately got her 2 last LP.. and again, some pure little jewels inside. nice, nice..NO, those kind of gentle 'adulescent' feminine adult voices (singing like little girls.. a whole genre came from that it seems^ *D ) are NOT only for things like Grey Anatomy, arf.. loved it outside that latter thing.. as i discovered her initially so.. nice rediscovery :)
At first I thought "Warp and Weft" was going to be the "canon" (as that's how the official website usually calls it), but apparently "Warp & Weft" became the de facto title. So I suppose "And" should auto-correct to "&", but unfortunately last.fm won't let us suggest corrections for album titles, only artist and track names...
@R-Mac, I've been a fan of Laura's music for a long time and been following her work since Saltbreakers. Obviously, the songs in this album are childish because it is indeed a cover album of folk songs for children. Although it's pretty cute and comes with Laura's incredible musical quality, it isn't as exciting as a new album with her own songs would be, with her usual mature lyrical content. Anyway, she's just in love with her little baby son, it's just a phase. I'm sure she'll come along with some new material of her own anytime soon. :)
