After building a solid career on the strength of a series of rapidly released pretty folk-pop records hatched with high-profile companions like Iron & Wine's Sam Beam and Sufjan Stevens, Rosie Thomas suddenly dropped off the map in 2007. While fans not in the know could only assume some sort of artistic burnout, the reality was far worse. A crippling thyroid disorder had rendered Thomas seriously depressed and close to bedridden. After finally recovering a few years later, she took her time crafting With Love, released this past Valentine's Day. In the past, Thomas's tunes occasionally felt too diaphanous for their own good, floating away before making any real impact; the time away appears to have re-energized her, as she sings with a newfound emotive expressiveness on surprisingly rhythmic lead single "Over the Moon." If cool-coffeehouse folk-rock is your cup of tea you'll be hard pressed to find better. With Bhi Bhiman. (Photo by April Brimer)
