Punk Talks is a wonderful organization in Cincinnati that, in their own words, “offers free mental health services to musicians and industry workers.” Today, the organization released Jingle Yay!, a holiday-themed punk album featuring a host of great musicians. There are many covers of winter classics, but Julien Baker came in with a brand new song, called “Decorated Lawns.”
As always, the focus is on Baker’s amazing voice and mellow guitars as she tells a holiday love song of sorts. Baker is a fantastic storyteller, and her ability to convey her emotions so easily and effectively is what makes us such huge fans of her. “Decorated Lawns” is equal parts tender and devastating, and we can’t get enough of it.
You can listen to “Decorated Lawns” below and buy Jingle Yay! over on Bandcamp right now. The comp also features contributions from The World Is A Beautiful Place…, Cam Boucher of Sorority Noise, and more. In addition, you can learn more about Punk Talks on their website.
