Laura Veirs - 'Warp And Weft' Laura Veirs Tickets

A rich, evocative expression of a mother’s optimism and anxieties

Laura Veirs - 'Warp And Weft'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 19, 2013
  • Label: Bella Union
7 / 10 Considering she was eight months pregnant during its recording, you might expect Laura Veirs’ ninth album to continue in the vein of its predecessor, 2011’s childlike ‘Tumble Bee’. Instead, Veirs seems more concerned about the world she’s bringing her child into: “How can it be so cold out here in America? Everybody’s packing heat in America”, she wonders on (you guessed it) ‘America’. Yet there are also fables of inspiration to be found in the shape of Alice Coltrane (‘That Alice’) and the painter Howard Finster (‘Finster Saw The Angels’). It all amounts to a rich, evocative expression of a mother’s optimism and anxieties.
