EDITORS’ NOTES

At 25, Laura Marling has the poise and reticence of someone twice her age. Short Movie—the singer/songwriter's fifth full-length—is a beautiful album that both honors and questions indie folk traditions. Marling takes detours through waves of noise and experimental arrangements that balance the directness of some of the songs’ more direct sentiments. “I’m a woman now, can you believe?” she asks on the blistering “Don’t Let Me Bring You Down”—a pointed question that Marling doesn’t really need answered.
