Album Review: Bright Future by Adrianne Lenker

Excellent, Based on 3 Critics

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Similar to Emily Sprague's self-titled Florist album of a few years back, Adrianne Lenker's woodshed approach on Bright Future brings warm and wonderful results. Surrounded by friends Nick Hakim (piano), Josefin Runsteen (violin), Mat Davidson (guitar), as well as the ambient sounds of the studio itself, the album glows steadiest when all of the musicians' talents are brought to bear. Lenker's sing-song cadence gets things going on the reflective opener, "Real House." "Do you remember running?" Lenker asks before recounting childhood memories and ultimately juxtaposing the life giving and life taking properties of a hypodermic needle.

Photo by Germaine Dunes On Adrianne Lenker's last solo outing, 2020's songs & instrumentals, it was just the artist, producer/engineer Philip Weinrobe, plus the rain and birds that could be heard from the cabin retreat where Weinrobe recorded direct to tape. Dominated by radiant finger-picked guitar and vulnerable voice, the double album had a consistent, intimate feel all its own. Though the recording process for Bright Future continued Weinrobe's all-analog working methods, this time she's joined by Nick Hakim on vocals and piano, Mat Davidson (Twain) on vocals, piano and violin, and Josefin Runsteen on vocals, percussion and violin.
