Another in my series of ‘songs I like but you might not know’
This one is called Soothing. It is by award-winning Laura Marling and it is from her new album Semper Femina to be released in March this year. I could have chosen any Laura Marling song from this or her five other albums dating back to 2008. I adore them all. She is quite simply one of the most talented singer/songwriters living today. I urge you to listen to her work. Her lyrics are incredibly clever, sensitive and wise, and her music is simply beautiful. It takes a few listens because she is not ‘pop’. But she is worth it.
She is constantly evolving and expanding in her work musically and artistically. I believe the video for this track is the first she has directed. It is both sensual and haunting.
When I am in a particularly mellow mood I sit back with a large glass of red and listen to Ms. Marling and lose myself in her wonderful lyrical world.
