Julia Jacklin | To Perth Before The Border Closes | Sub Pop Singles Club
I’ve covered Julia Jacklin a few times on my YouTube Channel now, taking a look at both her 2019 LP Crushing and this year’s Pre Pleasure, so I’m no stranger to the Australian artist. Today, I’m going to hone in on one of my favorites from her; it’s her 7-inch offering from Sub Pop Singles…

In Elastic Days, the Introvert in J Mascis Shines Brightly
These connections we make can be easy in today’s world (especially if you land more on the middle-ground ambivert end of introversion, as I do), but knowing and understanding ourselves may very well be the greatest challenge of all.
One Weird, Long Band Name: A Peek at Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s New EP ‘The French Press’
I’m somewhat smitten by the upbeat pop sounds of one of Sub Pop‘s new signings from the past year or two. Itâ€™s a little band out of Australia with a weird, long band name: Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. If I didn’t have better things to do, like listen to this EP again unhindered by the…
