Out Now, Abigail Lapell’s New Album Stolen Time Takes Listeners On A Dynamic Journey Through All Corners Of Folk Music

Award-winning Canadian songwriter Abigail Lapell’s new LP Stolen Time strikes a fine balance between her hushed acoustic debut, Great Survivor, and her two rockier, Chris Stringer-produced records—Hide Nor Hair and Getaway—while bringing a live-off-the-floor 70s folk-rock vibe and more structural experimentation to the table on songs that feel expansive in their scope; unhurried, psychedelic, and other-worldly. Lapell’s band underscores and meets the power of her vocals on songs like “Ships,” a wild sax solo seemingly enticing her higher and louder to meet the crashing waves. But many of Stolen Time’s standout tracks are solo acoustic guitar songs, backed by little more than Lapell’s harmonica, pump organ, or accordion.
