CD Review: Singer Linda Perhacs Feels A Resurgence With "Harmony"

American folk singer Linda Perhacs will be releasing only her third studio album in the last 47 years on September 22nd. The new album titled "I'm A Harmony" features a load of special guests including Pat Sansone, Glenn Kotche and Nels Cline from the band Wilco. The inspiration behind this new album came as her 2014 release "Parallelograms" brought a sense of joy back into Linda's life, after not performing for over 4 decades.

Her new 11-song release begins with Nels Cline helping out on guitar for the psychedelic folk-rock of "Winds Of Sky." She continues with the quiet, stirring vocals of "We Will Live" as fellow folk artists Julia Holter and Devendra Banhart help out on the song's vocals. She follows that up with the spacey, 8-minute folk trip, "I'm A Harmony," before returning with the nostalgic, seventies acoustic folk-rock of "Crazy Love" with The Autumn Defense backing up Linda's vocals. Julie Holter returns to lend her vocals to the gentle fray of "Beautiful Play" and the experimental psychedelic trip of "Visions," before finishing the album with "You Wash My Soul In Sound" as Linda delivers another sonic folk gem.
