A young NYC folkstress: Maggie Rogers releases sophomore album 'Blood Ballet'

A young NYC folkstress: Maggie Rogers releases sophomore album 'Blood Ballet'

With the release of her sophomore full-length album “Blood Ballet,” 20 year old singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers crafts an impeccable collection of folk songs that convey an elementary charm. Opening track “Resonant Body” is built around banjo accompaniment, giving it an Americana feel that takes us back to Neil Young’s more rural tracks. Her voice is seductive, drawing the listener into a world of lyrical imagery with a clear gentle delivery. “James” takes the storytelling further with a three-quarter time waltz progression and heartfelt sentiment. “Drift” adds synth strings and soft percussion to the mix, underscoring strong-yet-tender vocals. Contemporary artists like The Pierces, Wilsen and Courtney Barnett all come to mind as kindred souls. - Dave Cromwell
