ALBUM REVIEW: Gia Margaret Shimmers on ‘There’s Always Glimmer’

It might just be the prettiest thing put to wax this year.

Singer-songwriter Gia Margaret crafts delicate indie rock that recalls the bare vulnerability of Sharon Van Etten, the sonic surprise of Sylvan Esso and the folky warmth of Bon Iver’s first album.

The Chicago-based artist’s debut album, There’s Always Glimmer, reads like an intimate series of handwritten diary entries, confessing desires, fears and raw feelings for an audience of one. It might just be the prettiest thing put to wax this year.
