Episode 321: Turn Out The Lights - Julien Baker

To say Julien Baker wears her heart on her sleeve would be an understatement. On Turn Out The Lights, the Memphis, Tennessee native (now based in Nashville) turns up the feels on an emotional roller coaster of an album that drags the listener down to the bottom and doesn't offer a clear way back from the depths.

Kevin, Eduardo, and Marcus are spending some time with this elegiac powerhouse of an album and considering the truth in "downerism" and if it's OK to feel oh-so-not-OK.

PLUS! Soul Man Gregory Porter is back and hitching a ride with Nat King Cole to make you "Smile" on his latest LP, Nat King Cole & Me.

Julien Baker's Turn Out The Lights is a journey into a dark night of the soul that's worth maybe not making it back from." - Kevin "Morose, yet brilliant, the most intriguing notion about Julien Baker's latest album (and career) is to contemplate when content will outweigh context and we truly get to see the full scope of her musical ability. - Marcus K.
