    She's brought feelings to the surface that previously she may have kept veiled. It feels like a significant breakthrough. [Feb 2023, p.22]

    Furling is a surprisingly dense record, its sonic pallet feeling deep and widescreen, even in its sparsest moments.
  3. Jan 23, 2023
    Though Furling is a fitting title in this regard, in the sense of closing around something, of creating a feeling of being safe and loved, there’s also a sensation of unfurling, of opening out, of expansiveness, of fearless abandon. That’s a rare balance to strike, and one that proves intoxicatingly addictive.

    Furling expands the sonic palette, bringing in piano, percussion, harp, vibraphone and more. The results bring new dimensions to her psychedelic folk. [Feb 2023, p.92]

    Unfailingly imaginative, her return offers another vital chapter in her unfailingly riveting career.

    It collates her various sides and strengths into the most complete and resonant recording of her career. [Feb 2023, p.44]
  7. Jan 23, 2023
    While country and roots music inform many of the arrangements here, slide and steel guitars are employed mostly as texture, creating a blur of sound. This is very much “vibes” music, emanating from a wide swath of influences, blending English folk, American roots music, and dubby trip-hop in ways that are both heady and nebulous.
