Megan Hamilton How We Think About Light

One listen to Megan Hamilton’s latest release, How We Think About Light, and you’ll wish you were sitting on a grassy hill, basking in sunlight, enjoying an outdoor folk festival. Or maybe you’ll imagine yourself in ’60s San Francisco surrounded by the likes of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. Either way, Hamilton has a natural knack for tying in the airy, experimental side of folk music with a touch of psychedelic rock, a mix that wrangles in any listener that crosses the Toronto-based artist’s path. "Are The Birds Caught In The Trees” is mystical and wispy, shimmering in all directions her gentle, yet stern, vocals take. "Detroit” and "Beautiful Girl” fall back on early ’70s rock sensibilities, while "Saint Francis” leaves behind the trippy distortion for simple melodies and soothing acoustics. Nostalgic, organic and truly enjoyable, How We Think About Light is every folk lover’s soundtrack to Canada’s breezy summer days. (Familiar)
