Anna St. Louis - If Only There Was a River

Record of the Week this week could have been one of a dozen, in the end we went perhaps the simplest; beautifully delivered songs.

If Only There Was A River is the first full-length studio album from L.A via Kansas City artist Anna St. Louis. We fell hard for this from the first play, a hushed confidence that is deeply addictive. Pastoral and evocative, you can hear it through the whine. Brilliant production from Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Kevin Morby in that they keep it simple, it's all about giving Anna space.
