Friday Freebie: Lauren Balthrop - This Time Around

Lauren Balthrop started out in Alabama before moving to New York, and now resides in Nashville. What makes This Time Around, her debut solo album so great is that she doesn't follow the typical singer/songwriter mold at all. Going from song to song, you could make the mistake that you're listening to a compilation of multiple artists instead of one individual. Take the first three songs: "Down" sounds like a rootsy Mazzy Star, "Don't Ever Forget" has a much more upbeat, almost pop sound similar to Tristen's recent work, and "Tumbleweed" is a quiet, thoughtful folk song. That's just the first three songs. This Time Around is filled with great songs, none sounding quite like the last one.

You can watch the video for "Don't Ever Forget" below. This Time Around is available for free on NoiseTrade. If you do download the album for free, be sure to follow Lauren Balthrop on Facebook and Twitter. For more on Lauren Balthrop, check out her website.
