Laura Minor

Salesman’s Girl

Hightone

Female singer songwriters. Sure, you have the classics like Joni Mitchell or the contemporary great ones like Lucinda Williams or Ani DiFranco, but there is also a swarm of others – some obscure, some quite famous – that do little to advance music. They frankly all sound alike and their songs have so little life they are already fading by the time you listen to them. Adrift in this sea of off-tune, often cliched mediocrity, a siren like Laura Minor can give one new hope. She reminds one a lot of two fellow southern girls; Shannon Wright and Shelby Lynne. She has poetic lyrics that rival Shannon Wright and a pop sensibility with a country flavored voice that echoes Lynne. From her sweet, soulful voice, to her serious yet witty lyrics and a style as endearing as her smile, Laura Minor can’t miss.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
