Boomkat Product Review:
With a whopping nineteen listed contributors (including Calexico's John Convertino), it's clear that Laura Cantrell's third album is going to be a thickly populated and densely layered affair. But whereas this could have led to an overproduced collection of songs, 'Humming By The Flowered Vine' retains the lightness of touch that led the much missed John Peel to describe Cantrell's debut as "my favourite record of the last ten years and possibly my life". In possession of a carbonated country vocal style which can't help but buoy your mood, Cantrell stands as tall as a glass of water amongst the beautiful compositions which populate 'Humming...', with the truly breathtaking '14th Street' and Latino-inflected 'California Rose' of particular note. Including Cantrell's interpretation of the Appalachian murder ballad 'Poor Ellen Smith' ("shot through the heart, laying dead on the ground..."), 'Humming...' will appeal to all those who've recently discovered the charms of Devendra Banhart et al.
