Album Review: The Weather Station - All of It Was Mine

>> Saturday, 24 September 2011

Rating 4/5

All of It Was Mine — the second outing from The Weather Station (aka Tamara Lindeman) — is a succinct, 28-minute-long set of 10 unpretentious and wonderfully realized folk songs. Working alongside producer Daniel Romano, Lindeman works on a sparse canvas that she unaffectedly fills in with earnest finger-picking (banjo and guitar) and her understated, oft-whispered vocals. Stellar album opener Everything I Saw is lively and immediately engaging; Traveller is quietly devastating in its treatment of loss. While tempos slow down considerably after the initial few tracks, the rest of this strong release is equally thoughtful and engrossing, and it's safe to say Lindeman is no longer one to watch. She is one to hear.
