The Julie Ruin Stream new album

The Julie Ruin are streaming their second full-length album 'Hit Reset '

The Julie Ruin are streaming their second full-length album Hit Reset via NPR Music’s First Listen. Hit Reset is available on LP, CD, digital, and cassette formats Friday, July 8th.

In late 2014 The Julie Ruin began work on their second album, Hit Reset, due out July 8th on Hardly Art records. Mixed by Eli Crews (with whom the band worked on Run Fast), Hit Reset expands on the band’s established sound: dancier in spots and moodier in others, with girl group backing vocals and even a touching ballad closer. Hit Reset is the sound of a band who have found their sweet spot. Kathleen’s vocals are empowered and her lyrics are as pointed and poignant as ever. From the chilling first lines of “Hit Reset”(“deer hooves hanging on the wall, shell casings in the closet hall”) to the touching lines of “Calverton” (“Without you I might be numb, hiding in my apartment from everyone / Without you I’d take the fifth, or be on my death bed still full of wishes”), Kathleen takes a leap into the personal not seen completely on the first album or possibly even in the rest of her work.
