1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release from the singer/songwriter. Sometimes it can take years to find your calling. Not so for Julie Byrne whose power of lyrical expression and musical nous seems inborn. Her second album Not Even Happiness has evolved at its own pace. It spans recollections of bustling roadside diners the stars over the high desert the aching weariness of change the wildflowers of the California coast and the irresolvable mysteries of love. Teaching herself guitar having picked it up when her father became ill and could no longer play Byrne also admits she cant read music and doesnt even listen to it all that much - her own vinyl was the first in her possession. Without possessing the right words Id describe to producer Eric Littman Phantom Posse and Jake Falby who contributed strings the feeling I wanted a song to evoke or I would take a shot at singing what was in my head. Though over all their contributions to the record are entirely their own vision and their own power. The follow-up to 2014s critically lauded Rooms With Walls And Windows this release offers a bigger picture through a wider exploration of instruments and atmospherics revealing an artist who has grown in confidence over time. Whether witnessing the Pacific Northwest for the first time Melting Grid the morning sky in the mountains of Boulder Natural Blue or a journey fragrant with rose water or reading Frank OHara aloud from the passenger seat during a drive through the Utah desert into the rainforest of Washington State The Sea As It Glides Not Even Happiness is Byrnes beguiling ode to the fringes of life.
