On Year Of Meteors, familiar surroundings come into sharper focus as the natural world now seems mysterious, magical, and new, and her lyrics are filled with references to the ocean, mountains, and sky; scientifically precise, yet disarmingly dreamlike. College radio-friendly arrangements that at times feel more like Neil Young than Nick Drake. Veirs incorporates elements of contemporary folk, Americana, alternative rock, and laptop style electronics into a mix that remains her own. Nonsuch. 2005.
