las lanas is the nom de song of brooklyn based singer/songwriter lisa liu. on her newest recording effort 'the blind year', liu brings together graceful, airy arrangements of piano and fingerstyle guitar with introspective, personal lyrics delivered in an ethereal, doubled near whisper. the effect is a restrained, musical beauty that is not easy to come by. there are also moments of instrumental meditation such as the spectral 'on waking'. this album is recommended.
