We knew from the first couple of singles that Julia Jacklin’s new album would be at least almost as good as her debut. We also know she never wrote a bad song, so a disappointment sounded very unlikely. Still, we weren’t prepared for how great it really is – and we’re so goddamn lucky she’s playing Festival Vodafone Paredes de Coura next August. See you all there.
Plus: new songs by Buck Meek, Damien Jurado, Baptiste W. Hamon, James Yorkston, Lowland Hum, Aldous Harding, Kalyn Fay, Molly Sarlé,Strand of Oaks, Orville Peck, J.S. Ondara, Justin Townes Earle, Reed Foehl, Harlem, Vandoliers, The Yawpers, Filthy Friends, and Black Country New Road.
