Laura Marling's "Where Can I Go?" Reviewed

Is it possible? Is Laura Marling getting better? The 23 year old English songwriter who has left everybody who started out with her in the dust has returned after a couple of years with this magficent song, "Where Can I Go" and while she hasn't quite shed her Fairport-y roots, this isn't really folk, not with the boundlessly energetic organ or Laura's sweetly uptempo vocal.

It actually sounds like Joni Mitchell circa Blue.

No really, it is that good. It is, simply unreally perfect. It sounds like she just got back from Europe where somebody stole her camera but gave her back her smile, though the smile isn't really complete and the song is troubled, it is all journey and no arrival and the lyric: back with her daddy, the one who went home to die and inspired "Goodbye To England To England (Covered In Summer)".

To early to return to England now, Laura is on the road of life and travelling , travelling, "All I hear is woes, there's something I don't know…" and the band grab holds on the band and swings it on and on. It's a 20 somethings song, the road stretches and stretches in front opf her and she is moving moving, not aimlesly forward but with the end of the road unseen and unseeable.

Off her upcoming fourth album, Once I Was An Eagle, expect it in late May and all I can say is if she tours here you must see her. I caught her at the McKittrick Hotel in 2011 and ever since then I have just been amazed by her. This is a song so good, I mean, you read the comparison, right? Listen for yourself. A magnificent song.
