On Show Me How You Disappear, IAN SWEET reveals herself as an innovative artist unafraid to shine the light on deep, difficult complication and to create bright, interesting pop music that answers only to itself.

Medford hits it out of her own creative ballpark, finding a sweet spot by allowing her poptimism to inform the album’s framework—and the satisfaction of hearing what that sounds like is totally worth letting it worm its way into your heart.

Dreamlike, lush, and inspired, Jilian Medford's latest is art pop for the 21st century.
