'Don't Weigh Down The Light' is Meg Baird's third solo album - the follow up to 2011's highly acclaimed 'Seasons On Earth'. The album was recorded at Eric Bauer's Bauer Mansion studio - most famous for the ragged and raging sounds of Ty Segall, Six Organs' 'Hexadic,' White Fence, and Thee Oh Sees. Like Meg's previous LPs (and much of Espers output,) the foundation of 'Don't Weigh Down the Light' is her lyrical, precise, and propulsive fingerstyle guitar work and a voice that's alternately soaring, tender, soothing, and deep with mystery - one that more than a few have likened to the folk's greatest female voices: Sandy Denny, Jaqui McShee, and Shirley Collins. But where 'Dear Companion' and 'Seasons on Earth' were relatively minimalist affairs, 'Don't Weigh Down The Light' swims in colours and texture. Electric guitars and organs float and dart around Meg's intricate picking and voice like ghosts. Distant drums become heartbeats. Piano and electric 12-string guitars shimmer like sun shining on rippling, crystalline seas.
