It may take some time and uninterrupted concentration, but the expansive All Mirrors grows on you with repeated plays.  It’s worth the effort.

This is music to float in. It falls through the cracks between folk, country, jazz and even experimental; chugging and moseying along at its own deliberate pace.

Despite its relatively brief 36 minute playing time, the disc’s concepts and sheer obliqueness makes it linger far longer as a bold declaration from a restlessly creative artist with plenty on her mind.

Duster is the band’s most sonically ambitious record to date and they have learned more than a few tricks in their time apart.

This isn’t as immediately powerful or riveting as Love & Hate. But the multifaceted material, along with the pioneering, organic and often offbeat production, grows on you.

Those with open minds and an affinity for ’80s sounds should warm up to this unanticipated, intense but generally enticing music.

This is a much needed shot in the arm from talented female singer-songwriters.

The ease with which they fall into these songs, picking up where they left off on 2008’s Consolers Of The Lonely, shows the four piece has a connection that may transcend the music.

Its combustive combination of talent, songwriting and sympathetic yet bold production makes Yola’s release one of the finest soul/country fusions in recent memory.
