While this may not be a concept album per se, the songs do run together along this theme. Her account of lost love dispassionately conveys how the hues of emotions color the way we see ourselves and others. 


With her new album, Diane has greatly improved her ability to write about familial and relationship tension in a manner that’s simultaneously unique to her and comfortingly familiar to us.


A record seemingly composed over the course of many sleepless nights and hungover mornings, About Farewell is yet another addition to the canon of brokenhearted sadsack singer-songwriter records.
