On January 24, Barsuk Records will release La Grande, the 3rd album by native Oregonian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Laura Gibson. La Grande is a town just east of the Wallowa Valley in northeastern Oregon, a place that “people usually pass through on their way to somewhere else, but which contains a certain gravity, a curious energy.” It’s an album about strength and confidence – about the tension between wildness and domesticity and the courage required to embark upon either path, about asserting one’s will rather than submitting. Joining Gibson on the album are musicians including Joey Burns of Calexico and members of The Dodos and The Decemberists. Gibson's previous album, Beasts of Seasons, was highly praised:

"One of the year's most breathtaking albums. Beasts of Seasons is nothing short of a masterpiece." NPR National Public Radio

"Both quietly devastating and life affirming." **** 4 stars MOJO

“A new soundtrack for your next long hike through the enchanted forest." Rolling Stone

"Gibson treats syllables with the same patience and loving precision a mosaic maker might put into cutting and arranging his / her tiles…rewards repeat listens.” Pitchfork
