Julien Baker's solo debut, Sprained Ankle, was one of the most widely hailed works of 2015. The album, recorded by the 18-year old and her friend in only a few days, was a bleak yet hopeful, intimate document of staggering experiences and grace, centered entirely around Baker's voice, guitar, and unblinking honesty. The album appeared on year-end lists everywhere from NPR Music to New York Magazine's Vulture. With Turn Out the Lights, Baker returns to a much bigger stage, but with the same core of breathtaking vulnerability and resilience. From it's opening moments - when her chiming, evocative melody is accompanied by swells of strings - Turn Out the Lights throws open the doors to the world without sacrificing the intimacy that has become a hallmark of her songs.
