Some records require a journey. Are You In Love?, Basia Bulat's extraordinary, glittering new album, required two: the Canadian singer went to the Mojave desert and then she went away - turning inward, shaking off the shadows, looking out to dawn. The result - after these journeys, singing the songs live in Australia, mixing and remixing in L.A. - is an album that's gorgeous and startling, quietly strange, a shining desert record with a bit of dusty rose over all its 13 tracks. Love Is At The End Of The World, the album's thunderous closing tune, is one of the most thrilling things Bulat has ever created; a blazing, incandescent ever-after, all raw electric hope.
