July Flame: Download, Pitchfork Track Review


Widely known for being among the most critical of media outlets, Pitchfork writer Dan Weiss had some kind things to say about Laura’s title track:

“July Flame”, the title track from her upcoming album of the same name, is a certain breakthrough, and for glorious 3:45 mere singing-songwriting is everything it could be: pretty, lyrical, sculpted, not sappy or cloying.  It’s nice to hear the word “unslakeable” spat in Veirs’ vaguely sexy purr, and while the violin-and-choir-assisted coda won’t be for everyone I know, she was right to dare it.

Just a reminder, you can download this track along with  “I Can See Your Tracks” for free in a single we’ve dubbed July Flame Overture.  We simply ask you to set up a quick customer profile before delivering the goods, so we can illustrate the wonders of The Raven Marching Band Shop now equipped to deliver downloads.
