@missymazzoli congrats Missy!
The arrival of a new album from Basia Bulat is always something to look forward to. Some years ago now I was immediately gripped by Basia's voice when I heard the utterly brilliant 'Go On' (From 'Heart Of My Own') When you hear Basia sing you can't help but to be captivated. Her vocal is so unique and so enthralling. It has a rasp, a rattle even, an odd tickle that is almost asthmatic, a shortness of breath that is sometimes scared, sometimes fearful but always emotive. Her voice has a rough lining that has such a beautiful quiver and beguiling vibration; she can at times sound like she's singing popping candy but in the most enigmatic and bewitching way.
To try and describe her voice, however hard I try, never quite does justice to such a wonderful instrument. Couple that with her proven ability as a song writer and her incredible musicianship and you begin to wonder why she isn't better known in public's consciousness. (I'm quite happy that she's a bit of a well-kept secret.....but she does deserve to be heard a hell of a lot more)
'Good Advice' is the fourth album from Ontarian Basia Bulat. Following on from 2013's Juno nominated, 'Tall, Tall Shadows', and 2010's breakthrough album, 'Heart Of My Own', 'Good Advice' captures the trauma and torment of a particularly painful break up. Basia reflects with brutal honesty about her failed relationship, how she has been left, how deeply affected she has been and just how devastated and let down she feels.
