AllMusic Review by

From the first discordant notes of "Victims and Villains" to the gentle if passionate strumming of "Coffee in Your Teacup," Julia Brown's debut album, Jubilant Newborn Alien Haze, explores a variety of musical textures without seeming like a mishmash or a muddle. Her voice is warm and folky and really gets a chance to stretch out on the passionate "Instinct #1," but her real strength is her songwriting, which allows her to explore elements of folk, R&B, alternative, and pop while still tossing out a meaningful lyric or two.
