don't you know it's bad luck to stay in one place for too long

About two months ago, a reader recommended an artist named Basia Bulat based on my love for St. Vincent. Boy, what a great suggestion! To a degree, Basia Bulat’s debut, Oh, My Darling does remind me of St. Vincent, especially songs like "I Was A Daughter", "Snakes And Ladders", "Little One", and "The Pilgriming Vine" where the rich instrumentals produce some beautiful multi-texture layers of music. On the other hand, tracks like "Little Waltz", "Bird Of Paradise", and "Secret" are as bare and as gentle as songs from Dear Companion by Meg Baird. Oh, My Darling is essentially a collection of some very gorgeous tunes and it is an ideal companion for those peaceful autumn walks.

Little Waltz
Snakes And Ladders [wicked-cool song]
Secret [wicked-cool song]

hmm, and I was just thinking that this was more of a summer album.
