A break from perfume

Well, not really. I'm still wearing perfume, fear not, but I thought today I would post a couple of Youtube links to one of my recent favourite artists, Laura Marling.

I'm not sure how many of you know of her, particularly in America, as she is a British artist, with a predominantly folk background. She's only just 21 but has already release three albums. Reminiscent of Joni Mitchell in some ways, she is by no means a Mitchell clone and has some wonderful lyrics. Below are two songs from her latest album, A Creature I Don't Know - Sophia and Night after Night. Enjoy, and see if you can get your hands on all her albums. They're definitely worth listening to.


  1. Wow, gorgeous music! Puts me in mind of Leonard Cohen. I'm definitely passing Laura Marling's name along to my young, hip niece and her friends. Thanks!

  2. Pleasure Cymbaline. I think she's great - a bit of substance behind her, rather than other reality-show creation.
