If you were reading this blog back in 2009, you might remember that I was seriously addicted to young German folk singer-songwriter Haruko aka Susanne Stanglow. Her debut album Wild Geese received full five hearts and ended up as #5 on my best of 2009 list. It has been a while since that, but now there’s finally a new Haruko full-lenght Feathers & Driftwood out and available. During the first few weeks listening to this beauty, it has become quite clear that the relationship between me and Haruko’s folk songs was strong enough to battle through those few years without a new Haruko album. Sure that early crush and overexcitement of finding something new and thrilling might have faded away, but I still have deep affection towards her music. This is beautiful, hauntingly beautiful. This is the opener Come Home. Listen to / buy the whole thing on her Bandcamp.
