I'm six songs into Clean so far and wow it's amazing

It is. I'd been kind of lukewarm on her stuff previously, but "Skin" has been life-changing on this particular Friday.

so far i'm liking this less than Collection, as a front-to-back listen. some of the slower soft ones don't drive me wild and there are too many of them. love the taut garagey of 'your dog', 'last girl', 'cool' (which are the best songs she's ever written imo). incredibly talented songwriter

She’s great but I think this “band name” is a really poor choice, at least for an artist of her style. Maybe for a zany teenage punk band or something.

i agree. i'm not normally a "can't get past the name" person - in fact it always annoys me - but Soccer Mommy is not a good choice here.

I'm ALMOST past the name "Car Seat Headrest" (a band I love)... lol

Collection had a lot of modest pleasures, but Clean is a huge leap forward. She really leveled up everything for this one; better songs, more surprises, striking production.

I like her but honestly if I hadn't stumbled across her video, I would've never checked it out based on the name

name rules fyi

more surprises, striking production.

i don’t like the hard stereo pan in the opener

flopson, Monday, 26 March 2018 21:47 (one year ago) link

She and her band are playing dates w/Liz Phair, which almost seems a little too "on the nose" for a pairing... probably good exposure, tho

Name is good, I was wrong. Where should I start with her music ?

after party for the apocalypse (Ross), Sunday, 15 April 2018 16:38 (one year ago) link

There’s only two albums, no?

absorbed carol channing's powers & psyche (morrisp), Sunday, 15 April 2018 16:53 (one year ago) link

3 albums and some EPs i believe

Clean is such a good record

great record

Ross, Friday, 10 August 2018 16:05 (one year ago) link

yes. been listening to it a lot this week.

geoffreyess, Friday, 10 August 2018 16:22 (one year ago) link

same, not sure why but like it hits the spot - rocks out, has lots of nice mellow tracks-chill rockers

does not lose the momentum, which is kinda a problem i have with the snail mail record - too many slow tracks near the end deflates the balloon

this new one is really pleasant

I wish I heard some of the piercing sadness of Clean in the new songs, but will withhold judgment until I hear the full album -- maybe she's releasing the stuff that sounds different first, trying to avoid getting pigeonholed.

"Circle the Drain" is catchy but I'm not crazy about that super-clean production style, which for some reason (???) makes me think of the second Third Eye Blind album.
