What does it mean to be a traveler in a fixed place? An adventurer in domestic space? A troubadour in a confined microcosm, or a constellation of microcosms—that is, a microcosmos? These are the questions Nashville musician, songwriter, and published poet Lou Turner (aka Lauren Turner) was reflecting on as she wrote her luminous third solo album, Microcosmos. The spacious yet intimate cycle of cosmic country songs coalesce as her answer, demonstrating that to write a domestic epic requires finding the humor of a burp in the middle of a kiss, the smallest mercy in the gross but short month of February, the sacredness of saltines, the spiritual in the everyday. With her warm and welcoming voice and nylon-stringed acoustic guitar foregrounded over sparse yet playful arrangements, Microcosmos is a meditation on what it means to privilege cultivation over consumption and to ponder larger realities from within the shell of the fixed reality of a home. The reward is the adventure to be found in stillness and observation, the discovery of the otherworldly in earthly matter, the revelations of groundedness. Turner generously offers up these wonders to the listener, sharing hers, and inviting us to find our own. Lou Turner
