Laura Stevenson - 'Sit Resist'

Great album imo. Listening to it its evident of the talent she possesses that would lead to the success of 'Wheel' and here whilst she shows many instances of greatness its clear there's a sense of development to come and that she's still very much in the process of finding herself. Many great elements from 'Wheel' were again on display here, great variety between folk with some country influences mixed with some hard hitting and frenetic indy rock and then some more grounded and sombre songs such as 'Montauk Monster'. I absolutely love her vocals as well and how she'll alternate between carrying a song with them and then in others letting the very talented backing band and the instruments dictate the pace and energy and have her vocals in the background supporting the music. She also shows here an early talent for building her songs to excellent crescendos especially in the final few songs of the album. 'The Healthy One', 'Peachy', 'Barnacles', 'Montauk Monster' & 'The Wait' were all stellar tracks but 'Master of Art' was truly sensational imo and the standout track on the album. The instrumentals intertwined with her vocals truly made for an extraordinary song that was up there with the best of 'Wheel'.

I'm not sure if I prefer Wheel or Sit Resist to be honest. Her vocals are so powerful and evoke so much emotion. I <3 basically.

^ I prefer 'Wheel' but 'Sit Resist' is excellent in its own right. Can clearly see how she developed from album to album and tackled different themes whilst still relying on the great backing band and her raw vocals to create a pulsating range of addictive songs.

Jim Guthrie - 'Takes Time'

Wow, absolutely stellar introduction to the man. Great mix of folk tunes mixed with some great beats, addictive and gripping melodies and harmonies and interludes throughout numerous songs that hook you into each song. Gave off a really professional and assured vibe and I loved the general upbeat nature and experimental approach in differentiating between songs. 'Taking My Time' was a really stellar introduction with a great slow build intro before an energetic and rich sounding middle and fantastic crescendo. 'Bring on the Night' & 'Don't Be Torn' were two wonderful back to back pieces with the former being a very smooth and beautiful piece of music & the latter a more authentic and raw track. Particularly loved the repeating echo in 'Don't Be Torn' and the stellar solo in the middle. 'The Sound of Wanting More' was a fine track in what can usually be little more than a comedown from the middle and wetting the appetite for the closing tracks and 'Wish I Were You' might have been my favourite track off the record and made for a great penultimate track. Powerful and soothing vocals, wonderful mixture and engrossing backing sounds in every song, great build and pacing in numerous tracks and some very beautiful endings to songs. Excellent introduction to Jim Guthrie.

Was a great listen i$e, another top notch recommendation.

Saw this was Guthrie's first album in a decade so going to try and hunt down his early work. Very impressed on a first listen. Got a feeling Stevenson & Guthrie will be getting played regularly over the next couple of days . Master of Art imo. Stunning song.

Yeah that was a strong opener. 'Barnacles', 'Montauk Monster' & 'The Wait' was a great three song combo as well imo.

'Taking my Time' was a really great opener as well for Guthrie I thought. You're sure to do an in depth review far more justice than I so will keep an eye out for that one .

Just gave Laura Stevenson's Wheel a listen. While I prefer the more downtempo cuts like L-Dopa (which is utterly fantastic), the album is all around stellar. Kept thinking about how much she reminds me of Ani Difranco, but that can only be a good thing since Ani is one of the most criminally overlooked songwriters of this generation. As you pointed out in your review, the lyrics truly make up the core of Wheel's appeal. Don't regret listening to this one bit.



btw. Kudos for the work you did on my Venetian Snares review. The changes are very subtle, but it reads great. Good choice of pics too
