I Know I'm Funny haha could have been made by no-one else but Faye Webster.

Pitchfork

There is so much depth to Faye Webster’s dazzling fourth album. It strikes a perfect balance between classic country stoicism and the sound of the saddest person you follow on social media.

Mojo
One to file alongside Natalie Prass's 2015 debut, and to bear in mind when album of the year season comes around.

DIY
She knows she’s funny, but we think she’s pretty smart.

NME
While there’s a sense that Webster’s not taking the songwriting risks she once was, this transcendent set suggests sincerity suits her.

Record Collector
Here, Webster tackles themes of isolation and longing with the best crystallisation of her craft yet.

Under The Radar

From its opening notes I Know I’m Funny haha puts Webster’s skills on fuller display. The grooves get groovier, the jams jammier, the tears saltier and, as advertised, the jokes are funnier than ever before.

Beats Per Minute

At 23 years old, Webster already has a back catalogue that those many years her senior would make a deal with the devil for, and I Know I’m Funny haha only adds to the impressiveness.

AllMusic
At only 23 years old, she already has four albums to her credit and while her talent is obvious, a touch more vulnerability wouldn't hurt.

Loud and Quiet
There’s much here to enjoy, but no-one is laughing about how, after its more outward looking predecessor, it feels like a step backwards.

a topic of discussion about faye webster’s fourth album title - ‘i know i’m funny haha’ - is why webster included the “haha”. the term’s inclusion is a subject of debate, as its necessity seemed arguable. as it turns out, the term’s use proves absolutely essential in the context of the music and lyrics. on the title track, when webster dryly wavers over the “haha”, there’s a slight twinge; suddenly the whole song gets turned ... read more

This may be the most packed day of new releases so far this year. While myself and pretty much the rest of the site are mostly focused on the new Tyler, the Creator album, this new album by Faye Webster should not be missed! The main aspect that has made Webster stand out in the indie scene is her unique sound that blends indie folk and 70’s-style country rock very well. While the album has a tongue-in-cheek title, Webster goes for a more melancholic vibe that goes well alongside her ... read more

Faye does it again! She returns better than ever with her sad country-folk style that's impossible for me not to fall in love with. I've been super excited for this release ever since I heard Better Distractions and In a Good Way last year, and while I don't think any of the other songs top those, I think every song is still very good. Even if you're not a fan of country music, I recommend giving this a listen!

Favorite tracks: Better Distractions, In a Good Way, Kind Of, Cheers, A Stranger, ... read more
