It’s very rare for me to review a folk album that doesn’t involve an element of rock in it, but this is something special. Allegra Krieger is a singer-songwriter based out of New York, and the songs on her album especially Precious Thing, are some of the most gentle ballads I’ve heard in a long while. Her voice is fragile, almost to the point of breaking, but she sings so calmly that these tunes almost qualify as lullabies.
This was a surprisingly relaxing, warm album. Well done.
