Hi-Res
As the hole in the ozone layer gets bigger, more and more introspective records and breakup albums come raining down. It’s not always easy to find the gems amongst them, but Julia Jacklin’s Crushing is one of them. With a magnificent folk rock canvas that’s framed by a timid guitar and a haunting piano, the young Australian from Sydney dips her brush in shades seen in Liz Phair, PJ Harvey, Courtney Barnett and Angel Olsen’s work, all the while ensuring that her art is wonderfully unique. With a hint of cynicism and a wealth of classical melodies, this second album is an endearing work and Jacklin is never too tearful or self-absorbed. A real revelation. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Don’t Let the Kids Win is the debut of Australian singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin, who skillfully laces elements of alternative country-rock and early rock into haunting indie folk vignettes. Smoky vocals, discontent, and a presence that's mature beyond her twenty-something years suffuse the album with the character of a life hard-lived. That spirit is almost literal on the song "Same Airport, Different Man," a weary, single-verse rumination that ends with her deciding to try the train next time. It closes with a mumble and a quiet, dissolving guitar line, as if falling asleep over a whiskey. At the other end of the instrument range is the lush "Coming of Age," which uses echoing guitars, crashing cymbals, and a melody that yodels to express "I didn't see it coming, my coming of age." More sauntering tracks like "Leadlight" and "Small Talk" take on a light '50s nostalgia with triplet rhythms, rhythm guitar, and a country connection. The latter tune has her feeling the wrong age for anything, whether it be the cool kid at the bar, or imagining Zach Braff and Catherine Deneuve as her parents. In keeping with the album's self-consciousness about growing older and finding one's place, the title track closes Don’t Let the Kids Win with lyrics like "I've got a feeling that this won't ever change/We're gonna keep on getting older, it's gonna keep on feeling strange." Altogether, the album's palette and Jacklin's cracking, pensive delivery land her in a sphere with heavy-hitters such as Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen, with a touch of Lucinda Williams, making it a must for fans of thoughtful indie folk. © Marcy Donelson /TiVo
