    Siggelkow's Born Again is fearlessly exposed, touching on emotions in the most direct way — an infectious, wondrous full-length debut for Ellis.

    Born Again is easily one of the best indie-rock/dream-pop debuts to come out in years. Siggelkow’s firm handle on her sound is genuinely remarkable – it seems like she’s been doing this for decades and that Born Again is the album that finally ties it all together.

    Covering seemingly every emotion across its 10 pieces, Born Again is a record for doubters and dreamers. Born Again is for the lovelorn and bygone, yet through its range of emotive resonance comes a sense of fulfillment and joy. A rebirth, as its title suggests.

    Ellis’ first full length release taps into a discreet sense of introspection rare for any recording artist, let alone a relatively new one. It’s headphone music for lonesome, solitary Sunday mornings when the self-reflection temperature is high and the vibe is low boil.

    The ten tracks on Born Again might comfort those who feel the same but would not inspire one to take action.

    Recalling names like Tomberlin and especially Julien Baker, Ellis' melodies are much less memorable than her plaintive sentiments, likely limiting Born Again's appeal to the heavyhearted.

    Uniformly and unashamedly sentimental, Born Again leaves too little to remember her by.

    A great indie dream-pop debut LP from Hamilton's Linnea Sigglekow aka Ellis. Not as heavy sounding as her debut EP but just as much or moreA great indie dream-pop debut LP from Hamilton's Linnea Sigglekow aka Ellis. Not as heavy sounding as her debut EP but just as much or more personal and introspective. Still it packs a great hazy and dreamy vibe with songs that are quite personal and sad at times but also ones that you will want to listen to over and over again. Expand
