10 Songs, 47 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Dacus’ breathtaking 2015 debut album, No Burden, earned her the heavy title of indie rock’s “next big thing.” It wasn’t without merits: a gifted songwriter and skilled guitarist with a shape-shifting voice that growls as effortlessly as it glides, she's the rare sort of artist who seemed to arrive fully formed. But Historian proves the 22-year-old is just getting started. Rich with daring left turns (album opener “Night Shift” stretches an intrepid six and a half minutes) and penetrating lyrics about death and grief (“Pillar of Truth”), it’s a scintillating sophomore album that’s rooted in sadness and resolved in hope.

A Fantastic Sophomore Album

Lucy Dacus shines on her second album. Her superb vocals are wonderfully paired with an instrumental accompnaient surpassing that of her first album. The effect is powerful, and the music strikes to the core.

Hooked

I had never heard of this singer until a mention of her performance at SXSW. Decided to give this album a listen and was hypnotized from the first line. Every song is great. Fantastic music.
