Song of the Day:
I Was An Eagle by Laura Marling

I will not be a victim of romance
I will not be a victim of circumstance
chance or circumstance or romance,
or any man who could get his dirty little hands on me

Oh, God, Laura. You slay me every time.

She’s one of the few artists that I think matures perfectly with each record. Every time she changes her sound, I love it. But I especially love how the undercurrent is simply her. You can always tell it’s Laura singing, that they’re her lyrics. I love her lyrics. I like how they reveals a certain sensibility.

I love her music, I love how talented she is, I love that she’s my age and is proving herself spectacular. She gives me hope. 

In this song, she channels Joni Mitchell a little and it’s fantastic. I haven’t finished listening to the album all the way through yet (to be fair, it’s been released for less than a day, most of which I’ve been at work) but I adore everything I’ve heard so far. Once is also a fast favourite, I’m sure I’ll post that soon.

Go listen to this record, folks. You don’t know what you’re missing.
