We are pleased to share the single from Laura Gibson’s much anticipated Beasts of Seasons with you. Enjoy!
In addition Laura’s myspace page will be debuting one song per day from the album from Feb 6-16th, at which point there’s another very special event we’re excited to share with you.
“A bucolic collection of ruminations on mortality, these numbers are largely austere and threadbare, tastefully accented by rippling minor key piano, sawing cello, and the foreboding pluck of a banjo. It’s Laura Gibson’s wispy, fragile vocals that give the morbid subject manner a disarmingly self-aware grounding, as when she drawls longingly, “Shall I call your name, or learn to be alone?” on the lithe, slow motion sway of “Sweet Deception.”- Under The Radar
“It’s folk music like it ought to be. Delicate, but brave. Held up by a “flickering wisp of a voice suffusing the space with a warm glow.” I’d recommend this to any folk music fan or previous subscriber to No Depression. If you’re a fan of Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, or Bright Eyes this record is for you.” – Muzzle of Bees
“Laura’s voice blends the line between child like innocence and that of a veteran chanteuse. She can captivate you with little more than a gentle picked riff and her voice, but her new record â€“ Beast of Seasons â€“ incorporates more textures and experimentation (including the swirling, fleshed out version of Where Have All Your Good Words Gone.” – Herohill
“Her vocals are incredibly clean and the songs are sweet but intelligent.” – Quiet Color
“There’s a sense of urgency to the record that is instantly appealing.” – Who Killed The Mixtape
“Spirited” is a pretty but multi-layered tune, and strikes me as a little more experimental than much of Gibson’s earlier output. Good stuff.” – Cable and Tweed
