laura marling – a creature i don’t know

[music monday]


I, to this day, do not understand Laura Marling’s voice. How does that whiskey-molasses voice come from a creature so thin, young, and British? Well, it’s beautiful and wonderful and haunting, and I guess I’ll have to just leave it at that!

I discovered her through my local library’s astounding collection of CDs last winter. It was her 2010 release, I Speak Because I Can. Her newest release, A Creature I Don’t Know, came out this past September and is from what this video comes.

This music video .. ahhhh … I know it’s not autumn and we’re not depressed yet, but this video is so touching. It puts me in a very creative mood. I love what someone from YouTube commented, “I listened to this on the bus, and literally forgot where I was heading and why.”
