13 Songs, 49 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

At 25, Laura Marling has the poise and reticence of someone twice her age. Short Movie—the singer/songwriter's fifth full-length—is a beautiful album that both honors and questions indie folk traditions. Marling takes detours through waves of noise and experimental arrangements that balance the directness of some of the songs’ more direct sentiments. “I’m a woman now, can you believe?” she asks on the blistering “Don’t Let Me Bring You Down”—a pointed question that Marling doesn’t really need answered.

Laura Marling is a boss...

If you're looking for timeless music that is an instant classic, Laura Marling is that artist to follow. A singer/songwriter that is making her mark on the music world one brilliant album at a time.

A song writer that has the ability to write wisdom and croon melodies that reminisce the greats that came before.

I will follow her wherever she goes.

I'm sure this album will be added to my best-of list when it's released.

Laura is the brilliant, brooding,British second coming of Joni Mitchell.

Always GREAT. Never DISAPPOINTS.

The qualities of Laura Marling records has always been very impressive, from the songwriting, the vocals and the productions. This album will be no exception. Laura Marling always creates something that is new, yet still manages to keep her artistic sensibilities into her records. This album is supposed to be risky with more electric instrumentations, but it pays off big time. It sounds edgier and bigger than her previous records. Will sure be one of the best albums ever for me.
