Boxen Why this hasn't been covered more is beyond me. This album features a very calming, almost ethereal sounding tracklist that shouldn't be passed over. Favorite track: Halo.

Sophie Green it's simply beautiful. the first time i listened to it, it was a grey monday morning and i felt a bit anxious about all the work i had to do. within the first 30 seconds of playing anna-lynne's album, i was instantly calmed - like listening to the perfect lullabies

about

Lotte Kestner is the solo project of Trespassers William vocalist Anna-Lynne Williams.

The Bluebird of Happiness was recorded over the course of a year by Williams in a handful of bedrooms, as she transported her home studio from a number of locations around Seattle and nearby island Vashon. While retaining the delicate, intimate sound of her debut album, China Mountain, there are a handful of notable guest appearances on this new work. Damien Jurado duets on "Turn the Wolves", Arnar Gudjonsson of Icelandic band Leaves accompanies on piano on "Pairs," and Anomie Belle contributes violins to "Cliff."
