The Weather Station's Tamara Lindeman.
The Weather Station's Tamara Lindeman.

The Weather Station, led by Canadian artist Tamara Lindeman, has drawn an extraordinary amount of praise for the new album Loyalty. New female singer-songwriters are frequently compared to more famous ones like Kate Bush, Patti Smith or Joni Mitchell — but these are often-used archetypes, and just as often, the comparisons are overblown or not particularly accurate. So it is with great care that World Cafe joins those who have likened Lindeman to Mitchell.

The truth of the comparison is primarily found in the quality and the clarity of Lindeman's lyrics. In this session, she describes the time she spends crafting them; hear the exquisite session on this page, and look for the web-exclusive track "I Mined" below.
