British musician Laura Marling
has the #4 album on Q's Top 20 Albums of 2011
for A Creature I Don't Know
. This musical old soul's output has been impressive, given this record is her third and she's barely out of her teens. Marling has drawn comparison to Joni Mitchell, as well as to Fiona Apple, Fairport Convention, and even Leonard Cohen, and her previous two albums were shortlisted for the UK's coveted Mercury Prize.
