Basia Bulat – Good Advice (2016)

A sort of throwback to 1960s folk and 1990s singer-songwriter material (not unlike a cross between, say, Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos), the multi-talented Canadian performer’s fourth studio album is a strong entry in her discography. Not to sound reductive, but the album is so pleasant and Bulat’s vocals so distinctive that it can be easy to miss how poignant her lyrics are, requiring a few listens to fully grasp the scope of the album. Even though it runs under forty minutes, there’s much to discover and enjoy here, in particular its opening track, “La La Lie.”
