Laura Veirs

While the sun shines and the summer grass beckons to be trampled by bare feet, the whimsical songs of Laura Veirs perfectly accompany bicycle rides and stargazing alike. Her latest album, Saltbreakers, highlights the poetics of nature, humanity and earth with mellow and pop-y melodies completely worth a listen. You may recognize Veirs from “Yankee Bayonet (I Will Be Home Then)” where she collaborated with The Decemberists on their 2006 release, The Crane Wife . It also doesn’t hurt that she happens to be a Carleton College grad. Represent.
