Rough Trade Albums of the Month - March 2019
Sweet and swaying pop songs lull you with their tremulous vocals.
Australia’s Julia Jacklin releases the follow up to her debut album, produced by Burke Reid (who’s worked with Courtney Barnett) at The Grove Studios.
This sounds like a classic ‘70s female singer-songwriter album that should be blasting out of the 8-track player of an open-top car on a Californian freeway. It’s got a country kick, a shimmering Rhodes piano and is something that will be counted as a ‘classic’ in years to come (and indeed now - get it on your turntable).
LP - Limited Green Vinyl housed in Gatefold Sleeve with Download.
CD - Six Panel Digipack.
