Laura Veirs

Troubled By The Fire CD

€10 €12

"If Gillian Welch floats your boat, chances are Laura Veirs will, too, though her take on homespun Appalachia is tempered by modernist tendencies. Anyone familiar with 1999's eponymous guitar-and-voice-only debut will be taken aback here, ditching much of its thorny agit-folk for dreamily intoxicating balladry, sawing strings and near-perfect vocal phrasing. Opener "Lost At Seaflower Cove" and "Tiger Tattoos" are flawless backwoods country pickers, while Danny Barnes duets on the folksy "Ballad Of John Vogelin" and jazz legend/sometime Jeff Buckley collaborator Bill Frisell provides classy fretwork. Scintillating stuff." - Uncut
