Album Review: Laura Marling - Short Movie (Director's Cut) (2015 LP)

UK folk singer Laura Marling's fifth album Short Movie was released in March. In an interesting take on the traditional extended edition, Marling has taken the songs from that album to re-record and release them as Short Movie (Director's Cut), which aims to show the development of the songs from Short Movie as Marling has toured with the album since its recording. It's an interesting concept, a way of marking the evolution and life of a song after it's been nailed down to a canonical studio album version.

Laura Marling, The Fall, Kiasmos and more featuring on Melbourne Festival's 30th anniversary music program!

Our 20 Favourite Records of 2015...So Far (Part Two: 10-1)

Yesterday, we brought you the first batch of 2015-released albums that AU contributors ranked as the best of the year so far. A great blend of Australian and international releases, the list reflected a wide range of music tastes and killer tunes that obviously have struck a chord with music fans globally. Today, we continue with the countdown, naming the ten records that have stood out above the rest as some of the best albums of 2015. Sure, we're only at the midway point of the year, but no doubt, some of these artists are probably going to be making a few end-of-year wrap ups too. So, from #10 through #1...

Laura Marling set for Australian return this October!

Laura Marling is an artist I think everyone should have the opportunity to see perform live at least once. At only 25 years of age, the British folk artist has five albums under her belt, each demonstrating her incredible talent as lyricist and as a riveting musician. Her latest album Short Movie saw Marling head in a noticeably different direction musically, embracing a larger and certainly more electric feel. Still, she hit it on the head, with the record instantly landing to critical acclaim upon its release in March. October will see Marling make her return to Australia with her full band, ready to bring her new material (plus cuts from the rest of her catalogue) to life in some great rooms around the country. We can't wait.

Album Review: Laura Marling - Short Movie (2015 LP)

After a little time away from music-making, Laura Marling is back with her fifth studio album, Short Movie. Songs written in Los Angeles, but recorded in London, this album seems Marling’s most personal to date. There’s less weaving of intricate tales and personas, and a lot more, well, straight up Marling. On Short Movie, Marling - who’s been famously private about her personal life since she burst onto the music scene in 2006 - has, in her own way, bared her soul, and it’s one of the many things that makes this record a downright winner.

Single Stream: Laura Marling "False Hope" (2015)

Oh, Laura Marling. You amazing singing goddess, you. Overnight, Marling's new single "False Hope" was named one of Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Records in the World' and it's another tantalising cut from her forthcoming album, Short Movie. The album isn't out here until March, but we can't wait for it to drop. "False Hope" already displays Marling's move into a bigger sound - 'Laura goes electric!' one person has commented on YouTube. Her vocals are almost incensed, but the elements of fragility and richness which first endeared the songstress to many remain.

New Music Video: Laura Marling "Short Movie" (2014)

Everything Laura Marling does is magic, isn't it? We've been blessed with the news of her forthcoming new album, Short Movie, and as a bonus, she's also released the music video for the record's title track! The album, due out on March 20th (Caroline Australia/Virgin Records) is Marling's fifth and, going by "Short Movie", we can expect to see a shift in her creative output.

Festival Review: Splendour in the Grass Day Three - North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay (28.07.13)

Winter festivals are far from an easy exercise to put yourself through, especially ones that run multi-days. When you think about it, it's quite remarkable Splendour in the Grass has become the popular event it has, line-ups irrespective. I guess people are just gluttons for punishment. I feel this way after every Splendour.
