    ALBUM OF THE WEEK – LAURA VEIRS ‘WARP AND WEFT’

    Having a career that spans nine studio albums is a relatively rare thing these days. ‘Warp & Weft’ finds Laura Veirs as consistent as ever, as she weaves imagery and thoughts into song. This is a clever and thoughtful album that you could say is simple, but certainly not simplistic.
