Kelly Dearmore Recommends

Though she’s only released two albums of solo material, Julien Baker has quietly amassed a ton of critical praise. Following up her beautiful 2015 LP Sprained Ankle with the rightfully lauded Turn Out the Lights, the Memphis native can seemingly do no wrong. Baker leverages her identity as a lesbian and a Christian to imbue tremendous conflict in her music that engages the listener through vulnerable authenticity.

At the prompting of a friend, Baker ventured to Richmond, Virginia to record a number of her new songs at Spacebomb Studios. The tracks from this session were circulated among Baker's friends, meeting high praise and lots of encouragement for the songs to see a proper release. Soon, she found a home on 6131 Records' increasingly diverse roster, and plans were made to release her debut full length, 'Sprained Ankle.'
