Album Review - Laura Veirs - Year of Meteors

Laura Veirs hails from Seattle, but she just as easily could have
climbed down the side of a snow-capped, Scandinavian mountain. Her songs
exude a sense of icy detachment to which the road tales outlined on her
fifth outing Year of Meteors are remarkably well-suited. Although the
12-track set deals with the usual subjects of folk-rock troubadours --
that is, relationships, distance, separation, and yearning -- Veirs
finds new ways to express them by placing her poetic turns-of-phrase
within the kaleidoscopic textures of her atmospheric arrangements. In
lesser hands, much of Year of Meteors might have drifted towards being
plaintively precious, but in encasing her material within an array of
strange nuances and unsettling sounds, Veirs maintains an edgy,
off-kilter energy that is truly intoxicating.
