I used my iTunes Gift Card to buy Laura Veirs' Year of Meteors a couple of days ago and I'm quite enjoying it. I first learned about the album when I saw Lindsay Lohan carrying it around here (I also noted that she got 16 votes on Stereogums Indie Rock Hotties, which beat out Lindsay's 5 votes).
My favorite songs on the CD, so far, are the ones that contrast a feedback-heavy electrical guitar (which I'm convinced she got from this song) over a calm acoustic guitar. The album features some beautiful and simple acoustic pieces that I'm loving as well. Some of the songs are still growing on me (i.e. Galaxies), but I'm sure if I give it a couple more weeks I'll love them as well.
