"... acclaimed singer-songwriter Dar Williams returns with reinterpretations of her most cherished songs on a definitive double CD release spanning her entire career from 1993 s The Honesty Room through 2008 s Promised Land. This unique two-disc set is comprised of all new acoustic recordings of her most loved songs featuring such luminaries of the folk scene as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Patty Larkin, Gary Louris (of the Jayhawks; Gary also produced the album) and Sara and Sean Watkins (of Nickel Creek), and a greatest hits compilation featuring all the best songs from her nine-album career. This exciting release offers a unique new take on Dar's music .... "

Working on a Saturday morning does have its advantages ... Fiio X3 III and Hifimand RE-400's keeping me company ...



"The second album from the Swedish Soderberg sisters is full to the brim with charm. Recorded in Omaha with Saddle Creek producer Mike Mogis, and featuring a cameo from Conor Oberst, it's a bigger, better record than their debut, rounded out with the confidence of maturity and a smooth, assured indie-country sound. But there's an undertow to its sun-kissed demeanour; listen closely and the lyrics are shot through with darkness and gloom. "Now the pale morning sings of forgotten things…" begins the title track and opener, setting a mournful, nostalgic tone from the off. Even the mostly playful Emmylou, a sweet ode to the grand, destructive love affairs of the country legend, starts on a bleak note of surrender: "Oh the bitter winds are coming in, and I'm already missing the summer." But if the words sound battered by life, the music is filled with it, and The Lion's Roar works because, like their country inspirations, there's a steely toughness to the despair, and their extraordinary harmonies make even the glummest sentiments soar."

From Amazon reviewer :
"Janet Feder has recorded an album of depth, beauty and mystery. Traces of the singer-songwriter tradition are expanded by astute atmospherics and a pristine recording. This is so different. Every play reveals another layer, another moment, another pleasure"
