Seattle native Laura Veirs inhabits the same musical realm as Jane Siberry or Suzanne Vega does. They all instill a sense of magic and childlike wonderment into their songs. It is different and it is welcomed. She does not conform to any norms and is not trying to 'move' albums. Veirs writes and records music that is close to her heart and it shows. This album ranges from gospel to folk to alt-rock to computer-generated music. It always keeps you guessing. The music is haunting and at times poignant and the lyrics are completely genuine. You will find yourself humming along with her at your very first listen.
