Baptist Girls

Nearly two years of wandering the country and hopeful soul-searching have culminated in the debut full-length from Bro. Stephen. The feelings are clear, the lyrics are poetic, and the ghosts in the background are real…

Primarily recorded in a converted chicken coop in rural Indiana, Baptist Girls is stark but hopeful; haunting but beautiful. The sounds of incidental rain and the crack of the wood-burning stove do much to inform the experience. Occasional help from Cheyenne Marie Mize (Yep Roc / Bonnie “Prince” Billy) certainly doesn’t hurt, either!
