Daughter Of Swords
the mountain man singer’s solo debut is a thing of delicate beauty, forming airy folk songs into tender contemplations on a potential heartbreak.
In 2017, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig began recording a set of songs about a breakup that had yet to happen. Those feelings drifted steadily into a set of songs that lamented the inevitable loss but, more importantly, outlined the promise of the future. Working with Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn, Sauser-Monnig shaped what began as quiet reflections into confident compositions, crackling with country swagger and a sparkling pop warmth. Fans of Adrianne lenker, laura veirs and alela diane will fall in love with this record. “in every case, sauser-monnig spins a gorgeously spare, frail web” 4/5 – mojo.
