Another quarter with well-made high-quality sound.
Other song out is the bluesy “Bluebell mountain.” Here works the strings together to create a strong, but minimalist foundation for the beautiful vocal harmonies. It moves at a relaxed pace, giving the vocals a good leeway to explore melody.
Frase rings are catchy and will continue for a few cycles after the music stops, with a chanting repetition of the chorus.
A thoughtful album
Next tune out, “The circles,” is a more playful affair, the borderline between joy and melancholy. Here used jazz elements to fill the open soundstage Larsen jobs within. Although the songs are moving in the same terrain, all have something that makes them stand out in the collection.
This is in many ways a thoughtful album. The focus of the lyrics are interpersonal relationships (surprisingly enough), without there being an abundance of clichés and empty phrases.
Also explores Larsen arch types of text content, with a personal twist. On the final “Shelby avenue” seeps nostalgia of music form into thetext, which seems to focus on a lost, idyllic youth. Recognize Bart and poetic.
She blows life into her compositions
It is in no way innovative; Larsen is not out to revolutionize the genre. She chooses rather to put his soul in your work and show their talent in a familiar form.
That she succeeded in handy, although not all the material immediately sticks to the brain. The short session has large re hearing value.
This type of singer-songwriter folk / americana is a genre which in some ways may seem stubborn, characterized by rules and tradition. But Larsen mastered the superb and perfectly capable reinvigorate the compositions. Here trumps crafts innovation.
The fifteen minutes that fills here constitutes an appropriate length. Avoiding monotony, while creating a clear correlation. The format works again excellent for Marit Larsen, and cements the new chapter in her career.
