Her music touches on dream pop and experimental folk, and has been compared to Cat Power, Smog/Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom, Grouper, and Daniel Johnston, among others, while nodding to composers like Philip Glass and Erik Satie. Lady Lazarus received breakthrough press last year for her debut album, Mantic, including a 7.8 review from Pitchfork, and praise from Stereogum, One Thirty BPM, the Journal of Music, and more. She released The Old Manse 7'' with her brother Matthew's project Inner City Cruiser this past summer as part of the Graveface Charity Release Series, which included Mount Eerie, Xiu Xiu, Mike Watt, Hospital Ships, and more. Her new album due out 2/12/13 is called All My Love In Half Light.
