IAN SWEET has been the source of and solution to many of Jilian Medford’s deepest anxieties. Medford processes these anxieties by pushing herself to experiment with new musical directions that inspire her, while dig- ging for raw honesty and emotional depth that show through her lyrics. Medford’s third album, Show Me How You Disappear unfolds at an acute juncture in her life, charting from a mental health crisis to an intensive healing process and what comes after. It’s the sound of someone coming apart and putting themselves back together – to look at your reflection, and finally feel seen. Recorded with Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Empress Of) and Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers), among others, Medford approached this album as a curator. She handpicked the producers that fit each song, which explains the range and experimentation showcased. Medford then recruited Chris Coady to mix and tie everything together into one cohesive piece.
