Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

A native of the small rural Oregon town of Coquille, singer-songwriter and classically trained cellist Laura Gibson is part of the Pacific Northwest folk-pop scene that centers on the Portland-based indie label Hush Records, formerly the home of the Decemberists. Former Decemberists drummer Rachel Blumberg plays on Gibson's first two albums, 2006's If You Come to Greet Me and 2009's Beasts of Seasons; fellow Oregon singer-songwriters Shelley Short and Laura Veirs sing backing vocals on the latter. Her third studio outing, La Grande, which was named for a Northeastern, Oregon town described by Gibson as a place that "people usually pass through on their way to somewhere else, but which contains a certain gravity, a curious energy", arrived in early 2011.

Six Degrees of Janis Joplin’s Pearl

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

New This Week: Cloud Nothings, Craig Finn and More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

The first HUGE new release day of 2012, so strap in and get ready for a pretty comprehensive rundown! Dave Sumner's got your jazz picks, and I've got the rest. Here we go!

A Field Report from the New Country

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

Whither country music - or will it wither? Most of the c&w on strut at the recent CMA awards had more to do with 80's power-rock and 00's teen-pop than the morning farm report. In recent years, an alt-country movement in such Willy-billy suburbs as Brooklyn's Williamsburg has waved a country flag, along with a taste for trucker's caps and Pabst Blue Ribbon. This isn't a sudden outcropping on the range; ever since Gram Parsons… more »
