Wilsen #5 - Magnolia


It's been a little while since we heard new music from Wilsen, my 'third favourite album of 2012' Sirens the sole release from the Brooklyn based trio led by UK born Tasmin Wilson until now and the announcement of Magnolia, a four track EP due on May 18th in support of her debut UK tour (which includes some rather tasty looking dates; a tour with Matthew & The Atlas is followed by dates on May 6th at Slaughtered Lamb with Sophie Jamieson, May 7th with Broken Twin at St John's Church and concluded by two shows at The Great Escape festival).

The title track "Magnolia" instantly reassures and finds even more, a luscious, stirring melody complementing Tasmin's enchanting vocal and heart-shattering lyrics, here as crystal clear and intimate as ever amongst rhythmically powerful percussion and mellow guitar shimmers. Everything you could ask for in a track is here, atmosphere, beauty, a devastating voice; I'm smitten all over again.
