EDITORS’ NOTES

On her first solo release since her supergroup outing with k.d. lang and Neko Case, Laura Veirs strips things down to the bare essentials, framing her evocative lyrics in as sparse a production as possible. Aside from the psychedelic guitar fest that breaks out halfway through "The Canyon," The Lookout alternates between gentle, breezy folk-rock cuts, like "Seven Falls," and spartan ballads, like the piano-based "The Meadow." Veirs' cover of the Grateful Dead's dreamy folk-psych nugget "Mountains of the Moon" fits right in.

Welcome back

What an incredible record! Laura just gets better and better. Her vocals are amazing-I have all her records and she sings in ways I haven’t heard before. The music is so beautiful as always too. Bravo I’m blown away!

Great album!

I didn't know who Laura Viers was until I heard "Seven Falls" on my local NPR station. Wow--I went home and bought this album and can't stop listening. Every track is wonderful in a different way but I still love Seven Falls the most. A beautiful song with such sad lyrics. Highly recommend this album

Lookout!

I enjoyed this music. Gr8 voice and the fuzzy sound takes me back to the days of turntables and soft Summer days. Something to look forward to. Don't know much about this artist yet, but I tip my hat.
