CURRENT: Laura Marling – “Short Movie”

Laura Marling has grown up right in front of our eyes, releasing her first album, Alas, I Cannot Swim when she was just 18. Short Movie is her fifth LP, and first since 2013’s Once I Was an Eagle, and in her year away, Marling appears to have grown into her voice as her 2015 release’s title-track is one of her most assertive and unhinged songs yet. The song builds to a thrilling finale, with Marling kicking and screaming as she sings “It’s a short fucking movie, man.” She’s old enough now to see how brief our time on this rock is, yet young enough as to not accept her unchallenged fate.
