Already deservedly one of Britain's most acclaimed singer/songwriters, 23-year-old Laura Marling did her growing up in public, releasing her first EP at age 17 and steadily finding her voice with a series of albums that have led to this collaboration with producer/multi-instrumentalist Ethan Johns. The music's loose, flowing quality recalls albums such as Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, Tim Buckley's Blue Afternoon, Terry Reid's River, and Joni Mitchell's For the Roses, for starters. Rex Horan's bass, Ruth de Turberville's cello, and Johns' strategic percussive squalls combine with Marling's gently aging voice to work seamlessly through the first four tracks before taking so much as a breath. The raga-like open tuning of the early set revs up for "Master Hunter" before settling back into the gentle and reflective "Little Love Caster," where it's clear that Marling has more than enough musical ideas and personal thoughts to get through to the album's end. It's quite a feat.
