Mirah - (a)spera

I got wind of theis album a tad late but upon discovering it I made up for it by giving it a prolonged listen. Mirahs fourth studio album (a)spera is a bit of a gem, bringing the listener on an expedition of the soul. This is delivered through a soft yet enticing voice (quite similar to that of Cathy Davey) and wonderfully natural progeressions in the music, elevating both emotion and intensity. The World is Falling is perfect example of this. Explorations into other musical cultures is evident in Country of the Future. Mirahs grittier side is banged out in Forest and The River.

This is one for the listen over brunch
