eagle, human, british
Laura Marling came all the way across that big pond known as the Atlantic Ocean with a book full of songs and a mind to sing them. Yes, she’s British, and we all know how we feel about them: they’re delightful people who seem to have reformed their colonizing ways, but still get relegated to the evil characters in all your favorite movies. Her latest album, Once I Was an Eagle, veers from our common idea of what folk music has become (read: beards and banjos),
and boy is that refreshing.
