Laura Gibson, Breathe Owl Breathe, Mike Midlo
“Long heralded as a chanteuse of quiet spaces, Gibson has a history of calming rambunctious crowds to a tranquil bay of steady breathing, the peace interrupted only by an occasional bottle clink. However, where 2009’s Beasts of Seasons might have knocked politely and padded timidly into a room, La Grande—Gibson’s third solo album—barges in wailing and lawless, towing her along in its wake.” From the Portland Mercury’s article about Laura Gibson (here)
