Laura Marling - Cross Your Fingers. Marling is young, pretty and gifted with the ability to make words tumble. So what, you might say. Have you seen YouTube and MySpace lately They're chock full of young, pretty women with guitars tumbling over themselves to make their space intersect with yours. This one's a bit different, though. Marling isn't ingratiating, for a start. And if she's mannered. Here be talent. Laura Marling's Alas I Cannot Swim burst out of the speakers for me, a delightful discovery. While one of my favorites is ironically titled Failure, many tracks sparkle such as You're No God with its sweet shuffle, You've never needed someone to comfort you. A interview on 2008, and Alas, I Cannot Swim was also the featured Album of the week. If it was not for Laura Marling's appearence on Triple J TV doing a cover version and interview, I would have passed by the Album. Also Amzon's Review recommended nailed my decision to buy the Album. Since the Postcard era of the 80's, British folkpop has always found a place in my music collection. Laura Marling : Alas I Cannot Swim,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен
