Another easy one for Sunday. I remember picking up Sarah Harmer's You Were Here album on a whim my freshman year at University. At the time I was really starting to get into folk music in a big way and she fit perfectly. She's become my go-to Canadian artist; I like that she has a quirkier sound and I've always thought that her songs feel more like short stories than musical exercises.

Her latest album, OH Little Fire, dropped this past summer and I still don't know it that well as I've only done one straight listen through. It's definitely different from 2005's I'm a Mountain which was a journey into more the more bluegrassy side of folk. In Oh Little Fire, Harmer returns to her pop-ier folk sound, and on first listen-through I'd say that the album sounds more youthful than her others. I couldn't decide which song to upload, so you get two that happen to sound pretty similar.
