While performing at her show in Northampton, MA, Julien Baker covered the song “No Children” by The Mountain Goats during her set. Along with her 2017 release of her well-acclaimed album, Turn Out The Lights, Baker has shown to put a pause on everything around her with her slow moving, acoustic tracks.
“No Children” which is also an acoustic track, still has a faster pace in the original. Baker’s rendition is much more calming, hypnotic and well, just encompasses her overall vibe. John Darnielle of Mountain Goats even tweeted his praise for the cover, saying its one of the best versions he’s heard.
