Consequence of Sound
The record’s highs validate Spaltro’s position as one of indie’s storytellers to watch while its lows only make you feel like she tried to cram two records’ worth of tales into a single disc
American Songwriter

On her third album, Even In The Tremor, Spaltro lets her songs stop and start, muscle their way into cacophonous corridors and dawdle in pretty little nooks. Meanwhile, the vocalizing of her wordy narratives rarely settles into a pat melody, instead wending in the direction her raw emotions are taking her.

With her thoroughly detailed accounts of everyday life, Spaltro offers the comforting affirmation that complicated, hard-to-identify feelings aren’t so strange after all. Her songs, stuffed with information and emotion, act as an extended reminder to appreciate the gentler things the world has to offer
I prefer Ripely Pine and Tender Warriors Club to this but she is just so lovable, and that voice. what can you say about that voice. her songwriting is more confessional and Kozelekian than ever, except with lots of internal rhyme schemes, something she is very accomplished at doing without it sounding forced. there are just enough of those inspiring moments where she lets it all hang out to redeem the less finished pieces, and I probably am rating this too high, but I don't care you know ... read more
A thing of beauty. Her voice shines on this.
The songwriting is what drew me in on this record, which is a rarity for me. "Deep Love" has a beautiful chorus that feels like you would want to belt it from the rooftops in anger. There is even some risk taking with the synth-based intro on "Even in the Tremor"- not my favorite track, but I still enjoyed it! "Young Disciple" is a haunting, vivid story about death and it stuck with me after the first listen. One of my favorites thus far this year.
Particularly enjoy 'Deep Love', 'Even In the Tremor' and her writing on 'Young Disciple'. Generally a good album though some songs were a bit forgettable.
This was delightful, I loved it. Though it did doze me off during the second half, I think the first half was absolutely beautiful. Why have I not heard of her so soon? Lyrically, I think it hit the mark (only for the first half, unfortunately).

Favs: Little Flaws, Deep Love, Untitled Soul, Without a Name, Prayer of Love, July Was Mundane (the longest track which dozed me off but I see the beauty in the track, might need relistens on this (kinda like Oh Comely from Neutral Milk Hotel again))
