  • Releasing albums at the impressive clip of one per year, Seattle singer/songwriter Laura Veirs trumps her excellent CARBON GLACIER with 2005's YEAR OF METEORS. A highly eclectic record, METEORS shifts from surging, guitar-driven rock ("Galaxies") to spare, spacey laments ("Magnetized") to beautifully chiming folk ("Rialto"). Part of Veirs's charm is in her adventurousness; she's not afraid to meld an edgy guitar riff to an otherwise gentle song. Like CARBON GLACIER, this disc features her backing group, the Tortured Souls, which includes drummer Tucker Martine, who also produces the album with the intuitive flair that only a band member can provide.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (No. 985, p.78) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...Veirs drops lovelorn minor-key ruminations and cascading choruses while her band fills in the blank spots with strings, keyboards and sculpted guitar noise...."

Entertainment Weekly (No. 838, p.145) - "...[T]houghtful and hummable." - Grade: B+

Dirty Linen (p.63) - "The fact that Veirs' latest art-pop songs are replete with natural, celestial, and aquatic imagery makes them all rather mysterious."
