Laura Gibson – ‘Beasts of Seasons’ – Album review

If seasons were houses and people were deciduous, then autumn would be a hospice; and in God’s waiting room, as the elderly and infirm dribble and decompose upon their return to the earth’s crust, Laura Gibson would be applying the rustic soundtrack to their concluding days ahead of a winter of discontent. For the Portland-based singer-songwriter, her second full-length studio album ‘Beasts of Seasons’ languidly transcends with an assured simplicity the thin, fragile line between life and death. From the plaintive strum of ‘Shadows on Parade’ to the brooding thrum of strings that evocatively gather on ‘Where Have All Your Good Words Gone’, Laura’s serene folk clarity is only better by her euphonious lilt that cascades with a celestial quality throughout.
