Show Post: In House #1435
Given her appearance, one might surmise that Laura Veirs has a background in geological science. Bespectacled and refreshingly matter-of-fact, she just has a geologist's look about her. It's no mistake, then, that her songs are littered with references, figurative and literal, to phenomena like carbon, gravity, fire, water, ice and magnetic forces. Her layered and intellectually-driven lyrics are reinforced by her creative arrangements and the playing of her back-up band, the Tortured Souls. Comparisons to a slightly less coffeehouse Suzanne Vega are apt. Year of Meteors is Veirs' fourth album, out this week.
