    A soul sister of Dusty Springfield and Cat Power, Basia Bulat has a haunted quality about her. Fittingly, she just released the single "Tall Tall Shadow," off the upcoming album of the same name, due out Oct. 1 on Secret City Records. Her throaty, yearning delivery over chamber-pop orchestrations put her in league with Florence Welch. But where that songbird goes for operatic tones, Bulat coos like a dove on the wind. Aiding in nourishing Tall Tall Shadow's sonicscape are Tim Kingsbury and Mark Lawson, gents who helped Arcade Fire's The Suburbs win the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2011. A press release notes that Bulat traded her signature autoharp for something called a charango-- an Andean lute that suggests the Canadian's folksy sound is branching into world music. No matter what iteration it takes, it's gorgeous.
