Listening Post

Julia Jacklin just posted a video of her covering one of her favourite songs of 2016

Watch the Australian perform 'Paul' by Big Thief completely alone

Julia Jacklin released one of our favourite albums of the year (‘Don’t Let The Kids Win’). One of her favourite records, it turns out, is also a debut album of a certain mellow beauty – ‘Masterpiece’ by Brooklyn band Big Thief.

And so Jacklin has covered the group’s ‘Paul’. It’s hardly a wild departure from the original, but if you’ve enjoyed Jacklin perform DLTKW this year, this is reminiscent of those times she’s closed her set with her own title track played completely solo.
