Pink vinyl 7"
Release date: October 27th 2014
I saw Julie Byrne play out in the sticks at SXSW this year in Austin and totally blew me away, on a psych folk tip - reminded me of Linda Perhacs, Karen Dalton and Vashti Bunyan, that good.
We are stoked to be releasing a seven inch on pink vinyl of two select tracks Melting Grid and a new version of Emeralds.
“The songs of Julie Byrne are hushed and mysterious. Close-miked within the natural reverb of windowless rooms, utlising fingerpicked nylon-strung guitar and Byrne’s rich sequestered voice, they unfold from bare folk simplicity to abstracted tales of home life and longing that conjure up a simultaneous feeling of warm cabin intimacy and a deep interior sadness.” – MOJO Magazine

Julie Byrne's official site:
"More genuine self-expression came from Julie Byrne, a Seattle singer whose reflective, subdued set of poetic songs in the Walled Garden brought to mind a young, female, much betterlooking Leonard Cohen." [The Times - Green Man Festival 2014 review]
"Alluring, intimate and softly mesmerising" [Losing Today]
