Laura Marling – “Gurdjieff’s Daughter” Video

Laura Marling’s sinuous fifth album Short Movie came out last week, and today she’s shared the sprightly, tongue-in-cheek video for “Gurdjieff’s Daughter.” Though the songwriting on Short Movie maintains her careful, wise style, Marling also gets more conversational on this record.

As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald’s showcase, damn.) As much a… More »

All three of the singles that we’ve heard… More »

Laura Marling – “I Feel Your Love”

Laura Marling’s voice is electrifying even when it’s subdued. Her precise, powerful phrases hit like lightning bolts before rescinding behind layers of expertly-picked acoustic guitar. On “I Feel Your Love” she builds a silo from her lover’s favor, cloaking herself in it like a physical manifestation, until what was once a comfort becomes a cloying,… More »
