Laura Marling at the young age of 20 has already far surpassed her contemporary peers in the British folk scene. Releasing 2 excellent albums over just three years she’s shown a marked growth and grasp of a style of music that continues to elude those beyond her in years. A thoroughly English songwriter with a heavy influence of American instrumentation, Marling here on her Third Man release, gives us two covers of great American Songwriters. Produced by Jack White here Laura gives us her versions of two dark folk classics; Jackson C. Frank’s “Blues Run the Game” and Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done”.
