Like Author, Like Daughter, Denver artist Madeline Johnston’s debut as Midwife, is a haunting and deeply moving listening experience. It also serves as a requiem for Rhinoceropolis, the now-closed DIY venue that Johnston used to live at. The music video for the album’s powerful opener, ‘Song for an Unborn Sun’, mixes rambunctious footage of attendees of the venue with visually intoxicating footage of Johnston outside with her guitar, singing her heart out using a landline phone receiver as a microphone. Directed by Kim Shively, it’s a potent reminder of how, even in a world that gives us so much to see and explore, we long for the comfort and security of what was once our home.
