Editors’ Notes

With a voice that’s entrancing and fragile, wobbly and precise, Heidi Spencer imprints heavy emotion onto these self-penned tunes that slip just outside the parameters of folk, pop and Americana. The broken heart of “Alibi” leads to the casual flow of “Under Streetlight Glow” where she whistles her way to work. The Milwaukee songwriter is finally getting the attention she deserves with her third album, a highlight of 2011. The simple, economic arrangements are a particular strength. Acoustic guitars and pianos kept in service to the songs allow the listener to hear the beautiful trail-off in Spencer’s voice and the sweet empathy in the harmonies between her and Renee Hendrix. “Moth Met Spider” is a gentle piece where the whole group plays like a band trying not to wake the neighbors, while “Carry Me Softly” strips things down to acoustic guitar. “Hibernation” sweeps towards high-lonesome country. “Go To France” shuffles towards country-rock. This edition of the album includes the bonus tracks, “Nebraska” and “I Slept In Cars,” two songs of luminous sadness and flickering hope.

Customer Reviews

Sweet Music.

On vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii and listened to this whole album twice driving around. I do love it! Excellent song writing and she has a beautiful voice.

Another Great Bella Union Artist

This is another amazing offering from label Bella Union. With a line up like Andrew Bird, Fleet Foxes, Laura Veirs, the Walkmen, and many more, I figured I would download their newest release by recently signed Heidi Spencer. I LOVE it!!! Definitely worth your money. If you like the other artists on this label, I'm sure you'll fall in love with it too. Buy it.


This is one of the best albums I’ve ever came across. Peaceful, charming and as the title of this review suggests, heartwarming. There is something about this album that makes it wonderful and relaxing each and every time I listen to it. I even never skip any of the songs when they come up in the shuffle mode (and that says a lot). I’m sure this will always be a favorite of mine. Enjoy it!
