Listen to Talulah Paisley's somber ballad "Call," plays Mercury 2.10

There’s no rest for antifolk folk hero Talulah Paisley, who over the last three months has made a consistent habit of releasing engaging-yet-muted singles on Bandcamp, manifesting a mood board of introverted, off-the-cuff observations that showcase her prowess as an insightful songwriter. “Call” is the latest entry to this sonic scrapbook, a soft slow jam marked by a careening vocal performance against a steady acoustic accompaniment. Present are the somber similes we’ve come to expect from Paisely’s uniquely folksy craft (“squish me like your third grade putty”) amongst impressionistic observations of heartbreak — paired together, they create a grounded recollection of love and loss that makes a seemingly intangible sadness feel painfully real. Stream it below ahead of her February 10th performance at Mercury Lounge alongside Razor Braids and Dolphin Pal. Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Julie Orlick
