“What connects these 11 songs is a jovial energy hearkening back to the 1960’s eccentric readings of Latin American folklore with a captivating communal vibe” Tiny Mix Tapes
‘No More Lamps In The Morning‘ is a new folk route, a stripped down starsailor vector connecting heller to highwater. Foster, on nylon string guitar, and husband Victor Herrero, accompanying on Portuguese guitar, together weave intimate readings of songs spanning Foster’s songwriting career including selections from recent albums “This Coming Gladness” (2008) and “I’m a Dreamer” (2013) and back to Born Heller (2004).

“Unorthodox, riveting, fantastico” Record Collector
“Olde world Americana, trad spanish and psychedelicised lieder colour the emotionally rich palette” Uncut
“An excellent starting point” Q
