American singer-songwriter Meg Baird’s first solo album in eight years is a beguiling record that you just know is going to sink its hooks in you and never let go. It’s easy to be swept away by her airy vocals drifting over moody steel guitars. The psychedelic overtones of the music on Furling are hardly surprising considering Baird’s earlier work with Heron Oblivion and Esper. Her voice isn’t her only instrument; she’s a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, piano, drums and a Mountain dulcimer (with origins in Appalachia). Keeping busy between her solo releases, she’s lent her talents to projects by Sharon Van Etten and Kurt Vile, among others. This is psychedelic folk at its finest.
