Reseña de álbum

Canadian singer/songwriter Laura Barrett's first full-length recording mines the same delicate, impossibly playful alternative folk milieu as her 2006 debut EP, Earth Sciences. Often compared to pixie harpist Joanna Newsom, Barrett's weapon of choice is the African thumb piano, a handheld cousin of the larger mbira made famous by South African artist Stella Chiweshe. Like Newsom, the intricate fingerpicking that her instrument requires yields a lush web of sound in which to lay her offbeat lyrics and sinewy melodies. Unlike Newsom, Barrett possesses a non-divisive set of pipes that are both pleasant and plain, recalling a young Shirley Collins, and the 12 disparate songs that make up Victory Garden benefit from her evenhanded delivery.

Genres yield no property lines for Barrett, as she gleefully skips from folk ("Wood Between Worlds") to classical pop ("Escape to the Sun Dome") to torch song ("To the Stars") without ever breaking a sweat. Even when she misses the mark, like on the warbled, off-key French experimental indie pop number "Rien à Déclarer," it's hard not to root for her.

Her song "Deception Island Optimists Club," on the other...
