The Line of Best Fit

Our walkthrough of the life and times of SBBG isn’t one from behind a glass screen though, and her remarkable ability to detail and process these streams of consciousness while still maintaining their visceral rawness is what makes Crush On Me the unceasing headrush it is.


Kelsie Hogue’s debut album is likely to be among the year’s most extra albums, but behind its excitable homage to Britney and “TRL” lies an even more intriguing spin on ’90s alternative.

A fun, quick and painless debut record that employs some fun pop-esque elements along with some indie-rock influence. The indie-pop female-led world is full of wonderfully talented musicians and therefore it is hard to make a lot of new waves within that genre, but Sir Babygirl appears to have a good grasp on crafting unique song structures and easily digestible lyrical content, and so it would not surprise me if this debut slowly starts gaining more traction over the rest of the year. ... read more
