maganaAudio Antihero – October 28th

In this beautiful debut from Brooklyn musician Jeni Magana, we see a story of love and sacrifice. Nodding to the bedroom guitar pop beginnings of St Vincent or Cat Power, this EP is a layered, breathy four-song offering about being able to create a space for herself to speak, both as a woman and artist. As a naturally quiet person, she’s able to not let herself be silenced, with testament to that in standout track ‘Inches Apart’. As her hushed croons repeat, “I have built my cell by hand / I was dreaming of the Southern sand and while every night you visit me / darling you are friends with misery”, Golden Tongue delivers the haunted resilience of someone who has found self-acceptance.
