Julien Baker
Julien Baker
Julien Baker's solo debut, Sprained Ankle, was one of the most widely acclaimed works of 2015. The album, recorded by an 18-year-old and her friend in only a few days, was a bleak yet hopeful, intimate document of staggering experiences and grace, centered entirely around Baker's voice, guitar, and unblinking honesty. Sprained Ankle appeared on year-end lists everywhere from NPR Music to The AV Club to New York Magazine's Vulture.

With her new album, Turn Out The Lights (out Oct 27th via Matador Records), the now 21-year-old Baker returns to a much bigger stage, but with the same core of breathtaking vulnerability and resilience. From its opening moments -- when her chiming, evocative melody is accompanied by swells of strings -- Turn Out The Lights throws open the doors to the world without sacrificing the intimacy that has become a hallmark of her songs.

Adam Torres
Adam Torres
In 2015, following the highly acclaimed proper release of Adam Torres’s 'Nostra Nova’ LP, Flavorwire, wrote that Torres is “…someone who was, at an early age, able to connect his own odd experiences to the concept of life itself in an almost innate way.” In many respects, that description is a good start at capturing the magic of Torres’ music. There’s a persisting theme that threads through his own story as well as his recent 'Pearls To Swine’ LP. Within the cosmos of the album, characters experience a sort of misadventure and persevere, casting light on the way life can lead you down a path that’s far from where you wanted to be. 'Pearls To Swine' maps Torres’ complicated history as a songwriter and musician: it’s the sound of someone who discovered the value in his own devotion to music, and how writing and songs are extensions of his own journey. He embeds his own folklore within his high-lonesome sounding, deeply felt and moving brand of indie/folk music.
