The Weather Station - Shy Women

Full review to follow. With the stripped-down, back-to-basics All Of It Was Mine out of her system, Tamara Lindeman has come full circle somewhat, with a new band version of The Weather Station making its debut. That added some more folk-rock propulsion to the new material — if you reverse-engineer these travelogues, you might up up back at Topanga Canyon. But even with pedal steel and backing vocals, there's still a spareness at the centre of it all, carried by Lindeman's pure voice and nimbly-picked guitar. Tantalizingly, she passingly referred to having not one but two new albums in the can, so I suspect this band is going to be getting called into action again soon.
