iTunes Review

Laura Marling’s second studio album reveals that the young singer/songwriter surely possesses an old soul. She inflects with the matured depth of a world-weary tunesmith on the opening “Devil’s Spoke,” a slice of timeless Americana where banjo, guitar, bass, drums and Marling’s smoky inflections all come. The spare “Made By Maid” utilizes only an acoustic guitar and Marling’s voice to play as though she was waxing on the muse’s point of view from Neil Young’s “A Man Needs a Maid.” Producer Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings Of Leon) gives I Speak Because I Can an exquisite mix where negative space accompanies Marling’s restraint, giving more room to those uplifting moments as heard halfway through “Rambling Man,” where everything is suddenly played and sung all at once. It’s like the sun bursting through a break in the clouds. Backed by Mumford & Sons, the album’s standout “Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)” plays with a lilting elegance enveloped in hushed string arrangements and sublime woodwinds.

she is a genius.

Everyone should know who Laura Marling is. She is one of the most amazing artists I have heard and I have fell in love with everything that she writes. Buy this cd now.

Singer/songwriter Laura Marling was only 16 years old when she emerged on the British indie scene in 2007 thanks to a handful of infectious singles made available on her MySpace profile. Endowed with a husky voice, an acoustic guitar, and a gift for building quirky, hooky folk songs (characteristics that find her compared favorably to artists like Lily Allen, Regina Spektor, and Martha Wainwright), Marling quickly made a name for herself throughout England thanks to a heavy touring schedule and a...
