I have to confess, I had never heard of Basia Bulat until recently. I was mindlessly wandering an antique store in NYC when her sweet voice caught my attention. With light shades of Joni Mitchell and noticeable nods to Fleetwood Mac, Tall Tall Shadow is a modern folk masterpiece and is perfect for a cloudy winter’s day. The album was co-produced with Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury and Mark Lawson who seem to have the musical Midas touch. Although sometimes moody, Basia’s enchanting lyrics and warm voice leave you with a sense of comfort and hope.
“It Can’t Be You” is so far my favorite song from the album, check her out and tell me what you think.
