Canadian singer/songwriter Norine Braun has graced the world with a new album titled “Through Train Windows” which was inspired by her cross-Canada Riding the Rails tour as Artist On Board with partner Alice Fraser last year. “Through Train Windows” gets off to a slow start with the opener track “Sleeping Buffalo” but picks up some steam with the catchy and cathartic “I’m Going Home” where she channels her inner-Joni Mitchell complete with jangly guitars and shimmering drums.
“Jerkwater Town” is a gritty jam that thumps in your eardrums while “Exhale” is a breath of fresh air musically and vocal wise that stand outs loud and proud on this album. Blues are alive and well on “Climbing Table Mountain” which casually strolls through your head for nearly four minutes. Other stand out tracks include “Moving On”, the smooth and sweet “Heaven Only Knows” and the voracious album closer/titular track.
I enjoyed the trip that “Through Train Windows” took me on and definitely think you should check out this album. Norine Braun’s “Through Train Windows” comes out December 7th on all major retailers.
