Laura Marling Debut Album

Astralwerks Records had announced the release of 18 year-old Laura Marling‘s debut LP, Alas I Cannot Swim, set for August 18th.

Marling is being hailed one of the most gifted performers to rise out of the growing British folk scene. Alas, I Cannot Swim, released in Britain in February, more than proves it. Her sense of melody and gift for lyricism would be impressive in someone decades older. Not being touted for just her age, Marling’s songs are stunningly crafted and, since her first US shows in January, she has found a rapidly expanding state-side audience.

Tour Dates:
6/16 – Brooklyn, NY @ Glasslands
