CD Review: Clare Burson

Clare Burson
By David Chiu

Brooklyn-based musician Clare Burson’s latest album is a stark work, but nevertheless quite intimate and moving. It’s a showcase for Burson’s mannered, torch-like singing and her aching folk rock: “Always Be” “Boat of Leaves” are affecting, the former augmented by some haunting viola playing; the driving “Love Is Snow” cuts deep; and “Let Me Lose Me” is an romantic love song. Sounding melancholic at times, Thieves is a gorgeously crafted work.
