The Lore Of Big Thief : NPR
She didn't have the money to attend the College full-time, but while she was at the summer program, her guitar teacher arranged a meeting with the Dean of Admissions Damien Bracken. He expected a discussion, but she brought her guitar and played him her songs. He was floored. He knew that Susan Tedeschi, the famed singer, had been tasked with helping to find a student for a Berklee scholarship — that student would be Lenker. When Tedeschi, an accomplished belter, heard her play, she counseled Lenker on how to project her voice more, but Bracken told her not to change a thing. To this day, Lenker sings like she speaks — soft but strong, a bit over a whisper, as if she's right beside you.

Big Thief Capitalize on Critical Momentum with 'Capacity'
"Masterpiece is a photo of my mom and her two brothers," she explains. "She was probably about 16, give or take a year. My sister sent it to me and it just resonated with everybody. It was the right cover. On the back cover of Masterpiece, there are two little boys and one of them is on the cover of Capacity. That's my uncle Adam, and he was about 14. Both photos make me ask questions, and I like that feeling. I feel like a lot of the work is asking questions, rather than giving answers. They've been very generous and excited about being part of it. They're really important people in my life, so it's great to look at them on the albums."

The Siren’s Song | The Ear
the star of the album is Kacy Anderson who’s voice can be described with two words: world beating. Think Sandy Denny when she was in Fairport convention, marry that to a young Joni Mitchell and you’ll get a very good approximation of her singing talent.

The Deep Dark Woods Yarrow
Perhaps finding inspiration in the dark, moody delivery of groups like the Handsome Family and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, with Yarrow the Deep Dark Woods have released the closest thing Canada has to a fully fleshed-out Southern gothic fable. Produced by singer Ryan Boldt and Edmonton singer/songwriter Shuyler Jansen, this nine-song LP is an achievement in sonic style, as tracks like the organ-hummed "Fallen Leaves," the guitar-driven nine-minute epic "The Birds Will Stop Their Singing" and the haunted echoes of "Teardrops Fell" transport the listener into such an unambiguous world that just a single listen is enough to create a spellbinding experience.
 
But the secret weapon on Yarrow may be the presence of Saskatchewan duo Kacy & Clayton, as Kacy Anderson's haunted backing vocals drift throughout the record, giving this multidimensional album even more breadth. Although at only 38-minutes in length, the album's slightly weaker moments — like during the too-precious "Roll Julia" and "San Juan Hill" — stick out a bit more than they should, there's simply so much to love here that it hardly matters; another 500 glowing words could be written about Yarrow and still not do it justice.

Angelo De Augustine
Swim Inside the Moon is a record by 24-year-old Angelo De Augustine. This second full-length of Angelo’s career captures a sound he’s been looking for since he started playing music a decade ago:

“A sound behind the voice,” says Angelo, who recorded all of this record in his bathtub using a reel-to-reel machine and a single Shure SM57 microphone. “I noticed that when you sing off a reflective surface you hear two voices. I was compelled to isolate that voice and bring it more to the front of the songs because in many ways I feel more connected to and comforted by that voice following me.”

Listeners might hear Nick Drake’s intricate arpeggiated guitar parts, Elliott Smith’s pure vocals, or, at times, a likeness to the soulfulness of artists such as Vashti Bunyan, Judee Sill, and José González. But for Angelo’s part, he found this sound on his own terms. As to what these songs mean, well, that’s harder to say. “I couldn’t tell you,” says Angelo. “I get into this place, and then I wake up with a song instead of a dream.”

A Mark So Fine: Joe Henry and You
n November of 2001, I picked up Joe Henry’s album Scar and was stunned by the opening track, a slow blues number called “Richard Pryor Addresses a Tearful Nation.” Henry, a white man, sang from the point of view of the black icon, expressing the comedian’s love-hate relationship with himself and his audience. Henry had the audacity and sensitivity to pull it off, with help from a spiraling, dipping, dripping saxophone solo by Ornette Coleman.

Scar was released in May of that year. Henry couldn’t have known how tearful the nation would be that fall. He closed the album with these lines from the title track, sung in a careful, mournful tempo:

The blade of our outrageous fortune,
Like a parade, it cuts a path.
Light shows on our foolish way
And darkness on
Our aftermath.

If I love you, to save myself
And you love me because we are
So fool to think that our parade
Could leave a path
And not a scar.
And I love you with all I am
And you love me with what you are,
As pretty as a twisting vine
A mark so fine
But still a scar.

Kacy & Clayton | Access Free Music, Tour Dates, Videos from NoiseTrade
Kacy & Clayton's music taps into a bottomless well of folk and country influences from North America and the British Isles, injecting centuries of musical and cultural history with youthful energy and a modern sensibility. Their vivid, character-filled songs explore the singers' rural roots, often addressing dark and bittersweet lyrical subjects in a manner that counterpoints the joyous uplift of the pair's musical chemistry.

Mavis Staples' Ode to Joy: Inside Her Stirring New LP - Rolling Stone
Fittingly, the most poignant track on the record is "MLK Song," which features words from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech "The Drum Major Instinct" and music by M. Ward. It's appropriate given the Staple Singers' association with the late civil rights leader.
"I probably heard that speech so many times," says Ward, who also composed "Don't Cry" and co-wrote "Dedicated" with Justin Vernon for Staples' record. "When I started to get into that speech, it just sounded like it should be turned into a song. I had some ideas on my four-track from years ago but I never finished it. So when I found out that I was going to work with Mavis, and I watched the Mavis! documentary, I just got a lightbulb that I really needed to go back into the basement and find this old song and finish it. To have Mavis Staples be the voice — I can't say enough how meaningful the whole experience was. It felt like we were doing something really good."
"I actually broke down," Staples says of "MLK Song." "I had to do a little crying on that song and stop the tape for a minute because Dr. King — I would just see him. And I remembered that speech so well."

In Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Daydreaming,’ Thom Yorke Walks Through Radiohead’s Past, Searching for His Other Half – Flavorwire
So when Yorke finally finds what he’s looking for in “Daydreaming,” crawling into a mountain cave, curling up by the fire, and chanting “Half my life,” backwards, over and over… it’s hard to take these signifiers as mere coincidence. When someone is half of your life, and you lose them… what do those memories you shared become?
