Tacoma’s lauren.napier returns on Nov. 30th with The Mourning Moon Hangs Quietly, an acoustic interpretation of her early 2021 album Mourning Moon, recorded entirely in her bathtub in one take. The songs are punctuated by lauren reading her poetry. lauren’s music has been described as “gritty and elegant” by New Noise Magazine, and MusicMecca calls napier “a force to be reckoned with.” The Mourning Moon Hangs Quietly finds lauren more contemplative, speaking about song meanings and finding her way through the music piece by piece, the album culminates in an intimate and spare rendition of the album’s closer, “Put It On My Tab,” performed tenderly by cello, before lauren gives a powerful reading of her poems “Contingency Plans” and “What Was Given” as an epilogue to the album.
