We are delighted to announce two intimate shows by Julien Baker to mark the release of her powerful new album, Little Oblivions.
"Weaves together unflinching autobiography with assimilated experience and hard-won observations from the past few years, Julien Baker's capacity for storytelling has reached new heights. Her new album Little Oblivions also marks a sonic shift, with the songwriter's intimate piano and guitar arrangements newly enriched by bass, drums, keyboards, banjo, and mandolin. With ['Little Oblivions'] she scales her music up to larger spaces, backed by a full rock band with ringing guitars and forceful drums. But she doesn't hide behind them; she's still ruthless and unsparing, particularly about herself." NEW YORK TIMES
"Unruly, complex, and gorgeous." THE NEW YORKER
The Observer **** "Where her previous records tiptoed, Little Oblivions stomps on effects pedals. Album opener Hardline builds up into a breaker of pent-up instrumentation for Baker's voice to surf."
Uncut 8/10 "Everything on Little Oblivions will make you feel, and it's the catharsis we all need."
