Mirah, '(a)spera' (K)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Lindsey Thomas

It's easy to create intimacy with just voice and guitar, but how many artists can squeeze a drum line into that equation? On her fourth album, Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn expands her sound palette, somehow adapting a Carnival parade for the otherwise restrained "Country of the Future." But whether picking out a simple melody on kalimba ("While We Have the Sun") or building grand layers of group chants, electric guitar growl, and mariachi horns ("The Forest"), she always sounds like she's playing to an audience of one.
