    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)’s self-titled sophomore album is out now on CD and digitally, with vinyl coming soon. "Vagabon chronicles a life enriched, and made complicated, by stepping into new contexts," writes the New Yorker. "Each song on Vagabon feels like a small world." "Her songs embrace mixed, elusive emotions," writes the New York Times: "longing and ambivalence, displacement and stability, seeking a home and leaving it behind, confronting fears and searching for hope." It's an "indie-pop masterpiece," Clash exclaims, "simply captivating from start to finish ... The work of an immensely talented melodic mastermind, Laetitia Tamko's second album touches on the magical."
