From start to finish Kris Delmhorst spings out a set of songs on her eight album that go from a whisper to a roar. The veteran of the indie Americana world continues her style on “Long Day in the Milky Way” with her traditionally vivid songwriting, steeped in her soulful delivery, and thoughtful arrangements, stretching the limits of the genre.
Delmhorst delivers lush, layered vocals, with immersive instrumentation. As a gifted lyricist, this 2020 release finds her at the height of her craft and building from a strong sense of purpose. Stressed yet hopeful, the songwriter responds to these times of global anxiety with a missive straight from the heart. If you like what you hear, add a physical copy to your collection.
