Currently listening ... back in a few.

1.5 songs in, I like what I hear (I'd actually never heard of this guy before: will have to check out his back catalog). Kind of a good ole boy who seems to be a skilled songwriter. I like his voice and his arrangements, which are both pretty classic country without any of the trite crap.

Initial rating of 80.

Quiet, serene, brief. But she gives us her everything, and that is enough.

Probably her strongest and most enjoyable offering to date.

A surprisingly strong, confident album of sad bastard indie folk, like only Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers could do in this welcome collaboration.

Bonus thought: "Exception to the Rule" seems to be inspired by early 00s indietronica legends Postal Service. It ... actually works.

I actually got through this whole album, which is saying something, I suppose. I've never been much of a James Blake fan, even at his best. There was a good groove going with the André 3000 track, but it sort of ended halfway through. Also, the Rosalía track is solid. But not much else really grabbed me.
