July Flame

Laura Veirs

I have loved Laura Veirs since 2005’s “Year Of Meteors,” and have grown accustomed to the intricacies of her vocals.  I highly anticipated her latest venture, “July Flame, ” which was released earlier this month. What I didn’t anticipate was such a  stepped-up game, in which layers of Sufjan Stevens-like instrumentation and deliciously harmonious background vocals seem to float atop Veirs’ lovely singing.

It’s quickly become my favorite album of the young year, and it’s moved to the top of the short stack of Veirs’ releases.
