jen starsinic - the flood and the fire

folk singer jen starsinic's debut album 'the fire and the flood' is stately entry into the world of contemporary folk music. smooth harmonies delivering sad, sad words, aching fiddles, thoughtful, sparse drumming. i have been trying to stay away from easy comparisons lately but this album's melancholy vibes, classy production, and the southern lilt of starsinic's voice do remind me of gillian welch's most instrument heavy effort, 'soul journey'.
