NonCOMM recap: Laura Marling delivers soothing, soulful performance

NonCOMM recap: Laura Marling delivers soothing, soulful performanceLaura goshdang Marling.

If I had one tiny bit of an even an ounce of her vocal talent, I’d be one happy soul. Or her songwriting skills, I’d take that too. Or her complete coolness would be nice also. Basically, what I’m saying is that I think I want to be Laura Marling.

Sadly, that cannot happen. But, seeing her perform live is a close second. After a hearty introduction from Bob Boilen, Marling and crew swan-dived right into debut single, “Soothing,” off of her latest album, Semper Femina.

With a piercing yet still somehow soft gaze cutting through ...

First-Class Original Bluegrass and a Lower East Side Gig From Cricket Tell the Weather

Source: New York Music Daily

Cricket Tell the Weather have pretty much everything you could possibly want from a bluegrass band: inspiring instrumental chops, vivid storytelling and a dynamic range that runs the gamut from ecstatic to mournful. What distinguishes them from the legions of cover bands and pop musicians posing as Americana pickers is frontwoman/fiddler Andrea Asprelli’s songwriting. She’s informed by tradition but not reverent. Her songs are homespun but not sentimental, and she loves historical references. She and the band have a 10 PM gig on March 21 at the scruffy downstairs third-stage room at the Rockwood; cover is $10.

Their latest album, Tell ...

Laura Marling shares new video for “Next Time” via NPR Music First Watch

Laura Marling has shared a new video for “Next Time,” the latest track we’re hearing from her forthcoming Semper Femina LP. It follows earlier songs “Wild Fire” and “Soothing” with a hushed guitar and gently-swelling orchestral arrangement surrounding the UK singer/songwriter’s intimate vocals, which are reminscent of Karen Carpenter at times. NPR Music has the premiere of the video in their First Watch series here.

In the opening frames of the video, we find ourselves in an antiquated but beautifully lush bedroom with a woman gazing out of a floor-to-ceiling length window, ...

Hear Laura Marling slow burn on new single “Wild Fire,” see her at the TLA in May

Laura Marling | courtesy of the artist

Last November, UK singer/songwriter Laura Marling shared “Soothing”, the sensual lead single from her upcoming sixth album, Semper Femina. She continues that trend with “Wild Fire”, which sees Marling sounding more confident in voice and arrangement than ever before. Stream the track below.

Where “Soothing” hinges on its prominent bassline and spacious, clacking percussion, “Wild Fire” sees the acoustic guitar return to center stage. The track has an undeniable warmth to it that brings to mind songwriters of the 70s, especially during its hooks, where she soulfully stretches out the “me’s” and “free’s” ...

Monday Playlist: Happy Father’s Day!

Source: Rock On Philly

Happy Father’s Day! The actual day may have passed, but the music doesn’t have to. This week we have a playlist full of great music inspired by dear old dad. With a little bit of rap and R&B, a little bit folk, and a little bit country we have it all!

A little school yard nostalgia…

And for all those times you drag the poor old man around…

Laura Marling with the female perspective.

Maybe one of the saddest songs from a son to a father ever written, grad a tissue…
