If Julien Baker's first record made you cry, her second will leave you utterly gasping for breath

MATADOR

In stock

Tennessee singer/songwriter Julien Baker's 2015 debut, Sprained Ankle, was as bare-bones as it was devastating, but two years later she teamed up with esteemed indie label Matador Records to release Turn Out The Lights and hence had a slightly bigger recording budget with which to work. The addition of strings, woodwinds and the odd background vocal to Baker's quiet, oft-wrenching musings on religion, sexuality, addiction and depression doesn't diminish their emotional impact, however. On tunes like the spine-tingling title track, in fact, the additional set dressing and better fidelity only serve to heighten it. While Sprained Ankle was adept at making you cry, Turn Out The Lights frequently leaves you gasping for breath.
