Corner of the World (Opus Music Ventures)
Luce makes lovely, delicate, subtle pop. With an overall feel that’s dreamy and slightly wistful, Corner of the World is a gorgeous album. Occasional folksy touches add depth, but never overwhelm the airy mood, and lyrics that are sensitive without being emo add the perfect finishing touch to this remarkably well-executed release.
