Check back for Part 2 (75-51) tomorrow.

Following her recent collaboration with Katy Goodman of La Sera on an excellent covers album Take It, It’s Yours, LA singer/songwriter Greta Morgan aka Springtime Carnivore released her own second album Midnight Room last week.

It is a record borne of a relationship breakup and subsequent insomnia, and is in equal parts reflective, questioning, tender and heartbreaking.

There are echoes of Neko Case and Jenny Lewis, and excursions into folk, indie pop and electronica, but more than anything else, this is an assured and self-possessed record with a clear identity of its own.

Listen to the beautifully melancholic title track, the jaunty yet delicate  Raised By Wolves and the arrestingly cryptic Double Infinity.
