    This is an album whose bone-deep grief sits inside music that’s very easy to tap a toe to.

    Every moment feels lush and welcoming, designed to reach as many people as possible.

    What's being attempted here is sensational, an unmissable combination of common emotions and abstract anxieties that shouldn’t work. And yet, when Lindeman shares with us, these songs explode with the air of something incredible.

    Instrumentally, Ignorance transcends the traditional folk that The Weather Station tirelessly perfected over the previous four albums. With an ever-expanding palette of sonics at her disposal, Lindeman weaves these tales of turmoil and regret through the usage of everything possible – horns, strings, several subtle non-acoustic guitars, and most prominently the piano. To reach the levels of awareness she sought required another level of sound, and it crackles throughout Ignorance.

    Ignorance, solidifies the 36 year-old as one of the most audaciously inventive auteurs working in the broad singer-songwriter tradition. This ten song collection broadens the Weather Station’s sonic palette by foregrounding fluttering flutes, crisp orchestral sections, and, most importantly, a propulsive rhythm section.

    'Ignorance' is a well-crafted and heart-felt piece of work that dances seamlessly through the caverns of dark and light, a perfect offering to hold onto with hope.

    As a whole, Ignorance can carry an audience through beautiful arrangements and atmosphere. However, and perhaps as a result of the beauty of the music and her delivery, Lindeman’s goal of delivering emotional lyrics hits shy of the mark. Instead, we’re left hanging on to every note.

    First listen an it already contends as a year highlight. The contemplative optimism never feels worn out . Strangely reminiscent of sharon vonFirst listen an it already contends as a year highlight. The contemplative optimism never feels worn out . Strangely reminiscent of sharon von etten's 2019 release yet still singular. She has something to say and says it eloquently . The catchy "i tried to tell you "discusses missed opportunities:romance, chances. "Separated" examines a failing relationship that hasn't been ended. The anti capitalist anthem "robber "still steals our hearts in the context of the full album. This is the climate change album we all needed. Favourites:robber,i tried to tell you,parking lot. Expand
