The opening track starts scratching my spirit animal behind the ears and before i know it, “roll it” is on and my spirit animal and i have our heads stuck out in the breeze, banging a drum beat on the roof. Pretty sure my spirit animal is a dog.
If you arrived on this page because you heard somebody raving about how lovely this Julien Baker album is, all you need to know is that they were right (but you might need to put your headphones on & lay under the covers in order to realize it).
If you are a fan of dirty and raw punk n‘ roll, the stuff that sounds like it has just been freshly scraped off the floor of a garage, you'd be hard pressed to find a better album from 2012 than this one.
Just listening to the trailer/sampler has already got me thinking about buying a poncho. I worry what will happen once I listen to the album in full. UPDATE: I did not buy a poncho, but I do love this record.
