Welcome back Phoebe, we missed you...
Bridgers made a very strong name for herself in 2017 with her debut record “Stranger in the Alps”, a confined and personal example of her beautiful poetry. The lonely instrumentation on that project, paired with her southern-twanged vocals, makes for an indie folk experience unlike any other.
This new record, “Punisher”, doesn’t stray too far from her humble beginnings. Simple songs with simple premises: a simplicity that strikes and stabs with intimacy and modesty all the same. It’s a record all saddening yet uplifting, the little changes in style apparent yet subtle. A piece of music so dispersed from the modern popular sounds that it builds on the mood she nearly perfected three years ago.
