Vinyl love: Basia Bulat “Good advice”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Basia Bulat
Album Title: Good advice
Year released: 2016
Details: Black vinyl, gatefold

The skinny: Basia Bulat’s fourth album takes the diminutive but massive-voiced, Canadian singer/songwriter into a whole new territory. Produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, “Good advice” goes beyond the usual auto-harp or acoustic guitar backdrop for her vocal exercises and gives her a massive, rainbow coloured canvas to leap off of. It’s easily my favourite of her albums to date.

Standout track: “Infamous”
