Veirs’s 10th solo album is perhaps her most satisfying yet, the deceptively simple songs sketched out on acoustic guitar or piano and subtly embellished by her band and producer husband, Tucker Martine. Lyrically, there’s a theme of making the most of adversity in the new America. There’s a dreamlike quality to the album, evoking Julia Holter – warm, Americana-tinged melodies float and harmonies soar. With The Lookout, Veirs has synthesised both her personal and political feelings into something that can sometimes feel timeless, offering a beacon to hold in the darkness.
