Sarah Harmer 

Oh Little Fire (Universal)

Some people disappear for awhile, and when they come back it’s only then you realize how dearly you missed them. Sarah Harmer’s first album since 2005’s I’m a Mountain is like that, a joyous reminder of a massive Canadian talent. More polished than I’m a Mountain and less melancholy than All of Our Names, Oh Little Fire feels like the true sequel to her biggest success, You Were Here from 2000. The wicked pop hook of “One Match” will stay in your head all day, but the haunting, wonderful coda of “The Thief” and the beat laced into “The City” are truly irresistible, as is the duet with Neko Case on the cover of Music Maul’s “Silverado.”
