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.

Pitchfork

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.

Creating and producing an album is a huge undertaking, but if Sir Babygirl had hired a different producer, this might’ve been a monumental step forward for pop music. Unfortunately, that fairytale does not exist, and what we’re left with is a pumpkin after midnight.

Good but not fantastic. I think Kelsie Hogue has a compelling voice; it is rather shrill and nasally. I like the way she flips between her higher and lower registers. Her humorous lyrics and bright vocals add to the technicolored production; the album is at its best when her creative words and hyperactive production match in energy. The opener, 'Heels,' is twitchy and sentimental, Hogue shrieking by the time she reaches the chorus. The whole song swells into this wacky bop that works for me. ... read more

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

Really unique sound with an interesting voice that grows on you. Also nice to see a shorter first album that goes for quality over quantity.
