The vinyl and the cd includes artwork, a lyrics sheet, all drawn by Joanna, too.
The first vinyl pressing will sell out soon so get to a show, a record shop, or Bandcamp. STAT. https://smarturl.it/joannasternberg-xoxo

“…for those who are able to identify with Sternberg, Then I Try Some More has the potential to be life-savingly relatable.” Pitchfork
“Sternberg has a way with simple stories and melodies that feel eternal…” Stereogum
“Sternberg’s music is upfront in its need for human connection. Then I Try Some More reveals the very maw of their sadness…” The FADER
“…these are their feelings, their truth, we can only sit back, listen and be thankful that Joanna is willing to share this with the world.” For The Rabbits
“New York-based singer Joanna Sternberg makes quirky, playful folk songs that recall The Moldy Peaches.” NPR
“For a debut, Joanna Sternberg’s Then I Try Some More conceals no raw nerves — everything is placed on the line.” Exclaim!
“…Sternberg barely fills the space around them, their tempered half-thoughts drifting in and out of focus, like bursts of bright sunlight through stale bedroom air.” Gold Flake Paint
“…Sternberg’s voice shines here, wavering to deliver the perfect amount of emotional vulnerability that we all long for.” Uproxx
“Sternberg sounds a bit like another Joanna—Newsom, that is, whose playful freak-folk attracted a cult following in the early 2000s. Sternberg wields similarly whimsical, barebones arrangements with that same childlike attitude.” Paste
“…heart-wrenching without being over the top.” Brooklyn Vegan
“Sternberg’s upcoming new album, Then I Try Some More, simultaneously reflects the pain of being viewed as “other” by most of the world and provides a source of strength and solace for those with similar struggles.” Spotify
“Joanna Sternberg is a life saver.” Balloon Machine
