Writing of Blues and Yellows (Deluxe Version)
The folk prodigy comes of age. Released when she was 17, Billie Marten’s debut album isn’t an astonishing achievement for a teen—it’s simply an astonishing achievement. Her songs are gossamer light acoustic fairytales and they’re gorgeous. Opener “La Lune” is mesmeric, “Lionhearted” shows there’s steel behind the beautiful melodies, while the quietly epic “Hello Sunshine” charts a stormy and intoxicating orchestral course.
