We're very excited to be hosting an in-store performance from Julia Jacklin, who released one of our favourite albums last year, "Don't Let The Kids Win."
Admission is free. Come hang with us on Record Store Day!
"Though only her debut, Julia Jacklins Dont Let the Kids Win works like a musical punch to the gut, a tearjerker that makes even the most public of spaces ready sobbing spots. Each of the albums 11 songs sounds effortlessly polished, her voice seasoned with the emotion of an entire lifetime. Jacklin takes elements of the whip-smart lyrics of fellow Australian Courtney Barnett, the evocative musicality of Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Ettens confessional poetry, and Jessica Pratts mesmerizing melodies the mosaic of strengths made fresh by a unique perspective.
Dont Let the Kids Win closes with its title track. Lyrics that at first feel generic become utterly personal. Dont let your grandmother die while you wait/ A cheap trip to Thailands not gonna make up for never getting to say goodbye, she mourns. Gonna keep on getting older/ Gonna keep on feeling strange, she bristles. Its as if shes offering advice to her former self as much as she is the listener. Throughout, the album offers a window into her world, revealing the singer-songwriters most intimate corners." - Consequence Of Sound
