“This album is about friendship, love and what it means to support one another,” Katherine Paul says of her new album. Arriving just a year after her debut record, “At the Party With My Brown Friends” redefines KP’s Black Belt Eagle Scout project. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship. At the Party With My Brown Friends is a profound and understated forward step. The squalling guitar anthems that shaped its predecessor are replaced by delicate vocals and soft keys, sentiments spoken and unspoken, presenting something shadowy and unsettling; a stirring of the waters. The end result presents a captivating about-face that redefines KP’s beautifully singular artistic vision.

Paul’s soft voice, washed by reverb, recalls the dreamscapes of Beach House, and there are reminders of Sharon Van Etten in the enveloping swells. The uniqueness of her voice, though, stems not just from her origins, but her uncanny ability to capture the heart.”
