Julie Byrne
Rooms With Walls and Windows

This is the one before the one that got all the mass acceptance but still managed to get in the top albums of the year in Mojo. Here it has been re-issued with extra tracks. Hers is a hushed fingerpicked world where Leonard Cohen meets Vashti Bunyan.  Beautiful, mystical work. Get on board before she gets even more popular.

Not Even Happiness

Julie Byrne, currently a New York resident who has lived a rather nomadic existence, plays gentle, dreamy, ethereal psychedelic folk. He lush voice is backed with strings to match. On her second album Not Even Happiness, is it apparent that Byrne’s talent for pitching a song just right comes as naturally as it did on her 2014 debut Rooms With Walls And Windows. Perfection takes time though, and this album has been a full two years in the making. It’ll be worth it, you’ll see.

Julie Byrne
Melting Grid / Emeralds

Julie Byrne's folk music is adequately described as 'sparse': it conjures a good treeline in your head the way Vashti Bunyan and Devendra Bandhart do. Her new record, 'Rooms With Walls and Windows', was released earlier this year to modest admiration that seems fitting for an artist so quietly confident. This new 7" from Static Caravan brings two choice psych folk cuts out of the woodwork: "Melting Grid" and an unheard demo version of "Emeralds".
