Review ·

Soothsayer Colin Meloy called Laura Veirs’ July Flame “the best album of 2010” in 2009. Her seventh album, and sixth time working with producer Tucker Martine, July Flame features Jim James, violist Eyvind Kang, and string arrangements by Stephen Barber as well as contributions from longtime Veirs collaborators, Karl Blau and Steve Moore. Preceded by singles of the title track and “I Can See Your Tracks,” (known as the July Flame Overture) as well as a fan video contest for the latter, July Flame taps in to the feel of mid-summer and was named after a brand of peach that Veirs stumbled across at a Portland, Ore., farmer’s market.
