Sometimes the biggest music begins with the smallest gestures. The Weather Station, the musical nom de plume of Toronto singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman, makes music that is quiet, contemplative, richly detailed, yet expansive in scope. With an obvious nod to the poetry, but also the restless musical adventure that is Joni Mitchell, seasoned with a bit of Cowboy Junkies, The Weather Station weaves together folk and rock with well-placed jazz and ambient touches. Lindeman's lyrics paint vivid mental pictures as she moves from a deep alto to a breathy soprano and back with ease. The result is nuanced and engaging, demanding of your full attention.
