Laura Marling, A Creature I Don't Know
2011 | Label: Ribbon Music / Domino Recording Co

Four years ago, Laura Marling sang on the brutally twee debut album by London folk-pop outfit Noah and the Whale, but she left before they got popular. Smart move. On her own, the English singer-songwriter won a Brit Award and scored two nods for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, all before age 21. Her third album is more guarded than its predecessors, but also more mature, and all the better for it. The ingenuous directness… read more »

A Creature I Don't Know

Shalmanezzer

This is a great album. Subtle and moody, and she has such a beautiful voice. This album reminds me a little of the latest Nina Nastasia album. An earlier reviewer called it "country blah hipster nothing music" which sounds more like a critique of a genre than a thoughtful review of this particular album. So if you like the genre of Country-Blah-Hipster-Nothing-Music, then consider listening to this beautiful album.

This is clearly one of the best albums of 2011. By far. Why? Because Marling is as original and as talented as Adele, albeit just in a different genre. This is one prolific songwriter who has released three albums in such a short time you wonder where she gets it all and if there will be an end to the flood of dizzying, superlative creativity. Her lyrics are frank, clever, and attention-grabbing. Her phrasing is just enough to make her that much different than the rest of the pack. This is crafty music, sometimes delicate, and often "slow" - but far from the moron who called it "boring" in another "review" on here. If you like your music to be smart and original, this is a must own. Dare I say this is the type of stuff that will help save music from the absolute state of rubbish that it has been in since the early 90's. When everybody else is rehashing old stuff, or blatantly copying it in a grab for quick fortune, along comes a lark like Marling... thank God.

25 Bands to See at Coachella 2012

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

There is every other music festival and then there is Coachella, the California-desert weekend that, in many ways, set the template for all that followed. The first U.S. festival to boast big-ticket reunions and all-over-the-map booking, Coachella continues to maintain its distinctive, idiosyncratic personality. Needless to say, navigating such a wide array of music can be tricky. We've picked 25 acts worth making time for. more »
