Laura Marling's first two albums garnered her critical huzzahs, Mercury Prize nominations and even a Brit Award, but her third release, the astonishing A Creature I Don't Know, is not only her masterpiece to date, but one of the best albums of the year.

Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield: Q&A

May 07, 2020|Kara Manning

Sidestepping away from what she told Rolling Stone was a "loud and abrasive" sound that coursed through her previous work, she veered down a different road for her fifth album.
