Good sad-sounding 2018 albums?

Yeah the run from Darker onwards is actually unbelieveable

Baseball Gregg - Sleep
Matthew Lee Cothran - My First Love Mends My Final Days

I wanna like Julien Baker but she has that unfortunate American lazy indie girl voice that I just cannot do.

Really? J Mascis has a lazy voice (albeit one I enjoy) but Baker’s voice bursts with commitment and energy, especially in the crescendo that she normally builds to in the back end of most of her songs


This record has the tickle of Nick Drake with the willow of Elliott Smith and a distant parp of Beirut.
