Oct 15, 2021

Welcome to the 39th Songs of the Week of 2021. It was a blockbuster week for new songs, although the week’s biggest song (Adele’s “Easy On Me”) didn’t make the list. But “Easy On Me” did set the all-time record for biggest single day streams for a song in Spotify history, so Adele will be fine.

Album of the Week: Snail Mail

Lush Out Now via Matador

Jun 08, 2018

In Lindsey Jordan’s short time as Snail Mail, the 18-year-old has cultivated an assured but dedicated following. Harking back to her ‘90s indie rock predecessors such as Liz Phair, Fiona Apple, and even further back to the likes of The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, she offers guitar-centerd songs that don’t whine or moan or even look for a nostalgia in a past that she hasn’t even lived-as seems to be one of the millennial trends nowadays-but find beauty in the mundane and the small details, the likes of which has been done as successfully by only a handful of her contemporaries in recent years. More

We skipped Songs of the Week last week because we were kind of on vacation, so this week’s post encompasses songs from the last two weeks.

Mar 23, 2018

Last week we skipped Songs of the Week. Most of the music industry was in Austin for SXSW and thus few notable songs were shared last week, leaving us with not enough contenders to even put together a Top 5 we were truly excited about. So this week’s Songs of the Week mainly covers this week, but has a few songs from last week, including the song that would’ve been our #1 last week if we’d done a list. Hence we have a Top 12 this week. More

Everything Is New

Nov 29, 2018

With her parents at work, Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan has the house to herself for the next several hours. Though she still lives at home, the 18-year-old’s time back in the Baltimore suburb of Ellicott City, Maryland is more or less a stopover between several days of promo in New York City earlier in the week and a flight in a few days’ time that will take her across the Atlantic for her first European tour.
