haley heynderickx I Need to Start a Garden (LP, £13.50)
Haley Heynderickx's highly anticipated debut album premiered in full on NPR Music who interviewed Heynderickx on the record and her process. Speaking to the time between her debut EP and the album Heynderickx says she "wanted it to feel intimate. It feels like a conversation to me, getting to play a show. And now making a show for an invisible person, I have no idea how people can intake and receive music without the external stimuli [of a live performance]. It felt like a different craft, so it took me a long time." Stereogum's Tom Breihan praised Heynderickx and I Need To Start A Garden saying "Heynderickx is the sort of virtuoso who puts her gifts toward making richer, more intricate, more deeply felt music" and Brooklyn Vegan said "Haley has gotten a lot of Angel Olsen comparisons, and they definitely have a similar sound, but Haley is a force of her own." The CBC premiered the album in Canada and praised Heynderickx saying "the best songwriting and singing of the year can be found on I Need to Start a Garden" while in the same breath comparing her to Angel Olsen, Feist and Joni Mitchell.
