Basia Bulat - Good Advice (Secret City) 2016
The Polish-Canadian angel that is Basia Bulat begins 2016 with a new stunning record. Still maintaining her folk roots, Basia now takes her unusual autoharp into more dream pop territories, without ever forgetting her origins. “Long Goodbye”, “Fool” have a very upbeat indie-pop feel to them with beautiful keyboards that complement her celestial voice perfectly. The best track is without a doubt “Someday Soon”, a somewhat hypnotizing song that enters your soul and for a moment leaves you completely entranced. Throughout Good Advice Basia shines in her use of various instruments, but it is the introduction of more lively drums and guitars that really separates it from her previous works, showing that for Basia this album was all about evolution.
