Photos: Julia Jacklin at the Independent

Julia Jacklin (photo: Ian Young) Julia Jacklin has had an incredible year, selling out Swedish American Hall in May and now the Independent Saturday night.

The album, available now on Polyvinyl Records, is filled with mournful lullabies that spin tales of everyday love and loss. Opener "Pool Party" swoons with country longing, while hearkening back to early Beth Orton and Fiona Apple.
