ANOTHER album of the year contender, with rave reviews all-round for this -

STUNNING album cover :disco:

I really didn't love the last Snail Mail album 'Lush', I often struggled to get through it. But this is MUCH BETTER. The addition of synths to cut through the guitars really works, and the songwriting is much tighter.
Deffo one for fans of Soccer Mommy (her very obvious peer comparison), Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and old school MICHELLE BRANCH.

The single Valentine is probably the most instant -

I've enjoyed the three singles so will check the album out. I've only got one song saved from her first one so obviously didn't really bother with that.

This is really living up the to the hype. I'm only on Madonna now, but there are no weak tracks so far! I was going to say my favorites, but its been all of them except for Light Blue, which is still good

I'm finding this terribly dull, but I think I'm probably not in QUITE the right frame of mind for it standing in a ridiculously long line to check into my flight :D This seems to be a theme recently with new (to me) female singers I try and give a chance to - I tried the Self Esteem album the other day while in a FOUL MOOD and found her voice so irritating I immediately deleted it from my phone :basil:

Oh actually, Glory just came on and it's VERY NICE. So the jury's still out!

Maybe my airport fantasy listening scenario actually isn’t universal. But I’m glad you like Glory!

I think Self Esteem’s album is great but I could see how her voice would really not work for some people.
