Sprained Ankle/ Julien Baker

This song is ethereal and melancholy, but not in the climactic moment of pain and “I can’t remember what light looks like” type of way, rather, in the “life is hard and i’m tired and I’m not sure how I got here” way. It reminds me of the best parts of both Keaton Henson and of Mree except for Julien isn’t writing explicitly about a relationship (which is nice).

And even though I’m not in a “life is hard and I’m tired” season, I’ve been listening to it on repeat for days because it’s that beautiful.

Oh and the lyrics. The first ones are: “Wish I could write songs about anything other than death”. wow.

Here’s the link to the song (which is on NPR’s all songs considered). It’s a beaut.
