Julien Baker – Funeral Pyre

Surprised we could only manage one week of "Best Of" posts from the citizenry this year. Even Phil got one up there, you guys ( 😉 ). Looks like DK and I will have to take it from here. I might be stealing one from him right now, actually...

Finally got to getting her debut. It's fantastic. At least in that "I feel a compulsion to listen to something pretty depressing" way.

I didn't really mention it, but the layout of this year's Summer Mix was supposed to resemble a summer day (as in a full 24 hour period, from daytime to late night). Specifically was channeling the summer days of a more youthful time, which were.... well, yeah. Anyway, JB's track from this year's mix really caught my attention. I placed towards the end as it helped symbolize the empty feeling at the end of some of those nights.

I was going to play this version specifically, but then I saw that Pepper had gotten to it. Went to find another song, and each one I found was better than the one before it (perhaps a Millions of Cats kind of thing). Anyway, I decided on this one, which isn't on her new album, but I'm guessing it will be on her next one though.

First time I've actually seen her. She can play. Might be lowkey in love.

  1. I've also gotten deeply into this album first this year. I almost put up something of hers as my 2016 pick as it came out in late 2015. (But I downloaded it after Zack recc'd it, so ...)
    I think I just needed to have the chorus of "Everybody Does" wash over me several dozen times before my ears picked up on it. Do I like "Rejoice" better? Maybe. Or is "Something" the best? "Go Home"?
    I tried playing for CER, but she wasn't that interested. I assume she'll need some teenager emotion-venting music soon.
