These past few months, I've been on a total Laura Marling kick. Her gritty, folky sound (the hipsters call it "nu-folk") is both captivating and pure. And she's such a natural talent - her debut album, Alas, I Cannot Swim, was released in 2008 when she was only 18. Which proves some people are just born with it. Right? I mean, what were you doing when you were 18?

Laura Marling is associated with Marcus Mumford in that he used to be her drummer and back-up vocals, and they dated for a couple of years (jealous). Take a listen and add her to your playlist. I recommend I Speak Because I Can, one of those few albums that gets you from beginning to end.

If you can't view the above on your mobile device, see the Devil's Spoke video here.

Laura Marling's new album, Once I Was An Eagle, officially hits May 28. And she just started a mini, North American spring tour. I'm praying to the nu-folk gods that she makes her way to Dallas.
