Further Information

On her proper debut, St. Louis spreads her wings and expands on the promise hinted at on First Songs. To achieve that end, she enlisted Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Kevin Morby to produce the album, which was engineered by Thomas in his home in Mount Washington, LA. The collection of eleven songs also features Justin Sullivan (Night Shop) on drums and multi-instrumentalist Oliver Hill (Pavo Pavo). While hints of influences like Loretta Lynn, John Fahey and Townes Van Zandt peek out of the corners of the songs, this album is not a nostalgic affair. Rather it marks the emergence of an artist fully coming into their own.

Staff Reviews

First album proper from Anna St. Louis on Woodsist Records. Stark, pastoral American folk, full of landscape and minimal but graceful instrumentation. Produced by Kevin Morby and Kyle Thomas (King Tuff). Really promising stuff with echoes of Karen Dalton, John Fahey, Mazzy Star, Jesse Sykes etc...
