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

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 27 February 2018 08:49 (two years ago) link

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

flopson, Monday, 26 March 2018 05:42 (two years ago) link

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.

alpine static, Monday, 26 March 2018 19:06 (two years ago) link

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

absorbed carol channing's powers & psyche (morrisp), Monday, 26 March 2018 19:10 (two years ago) link

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.

Evan R, Monday, 26 March 2018 19:16 (two years ago) link

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

more surprises, striking production.

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

flopson, Monday, 26 March 2018 21:47 (two years 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 (two years ago) link

There’s only two albums, no?

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

3 albums and some EPs i believe

Clean is such a good record

Still maintain a lot like Mirah. Love it

yes. been listening to it a lot this week.

geoffreyess, Friday, 10 August 2018 16:22 (two years 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

ufo, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 21:53 (one year ago) link

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.

so good. serious mary lou lord vibes on a few songs too.

akm, Sunday, 1 March 2020 01:51 (ten months ago) link

I like a lot of the melodies and stuff on this album, but the energy is so down across the entire thing. I miss the louder, chunkier moments that bubbled up on Clean.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 1 March 2020 04:35 (ten months ago) link

My initial impression is that I like it a lot, but I need to give it some time.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 1 March 2020 05:00 (ten months ago) link

I love this

circa1916, Sunday, 1 March 2020 14:08 (ten months ago) link

Not sure how much space I have these days for this type of music , but this is really great. I would have lapped it up 25 years ago

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Tuesday, 3 March 2020 15:38 (ten months ago) link

Surprised by the small number of posts in here. Clean was a favorite.

This one can be a bit slow paced (feels like side A could use a couple of 3 minute tracks to get this thing moving) but I really like the tunes. Nice melodies that recall Phoebe Bridgers / Jay Som / Japanese Breakfast / Snail Mail.

i haven't heard any of her other music but this album is great

J0rdan S., Sunday, 21 June 2020 08:42 (six months ago) link

"circle the drain" is quite easily one of the best indie rock songs of the year, "night swimming" and "yellow is the color of her eyes" are also knockouts. both surprised and not to find out that the producer she worked w/ also did the last war on drugs record -- this album is shimmery and enveloping in a similar way to me. generally i just love the textures throughout.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 21 June 2020 08:51 (six months ago) link

she's a very direct and efficient lyricist, love that kind of writing. "gray light" has some incredible lines

J0rdan S., Sunday, 21 June 2020 08:58 (six months ago) link

I really like "Royal Screw Up" but my daughter assures me that it's because I tend to like songs of that type

swam back to the shoreline
and found that all you left me was a note
i read it slow
you said that you had loved me
but you knew that you would end up on your own
a sinking stone

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 24 June 2020 07:50 (six months ago) link

the gentle fog of noise enveloping her in this performance ._.

i want someone who's following a dream
someone like me
who feels the air inside their body running free
i want the breeze

well the moon is in the water
and i'm dancing with the current and my clothes
are on the beach
you stay with the earth
cuz you don't understand why i would wanna freeze
the irony

we learned to dance, and i was swaying all alone
you're stiff as stone
you lock your heart up in a place i'll never know
the distance grows

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 24 June 2020 08:31 (six months ago) link

Loved this album until the lockdown put me in a different headspace.
Still, first time in ages an indie rock record has grabbed me like this, in much the same ways as those of my youth (ok boomer)

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Wednesday, 24 June 2020 08:31 (six months ago) link

Ya I'm with you baaderonix -- I was super-excited in the run-up to the album release,really looking forward to seeing her play later in March to kick off the spring concert season, and then.....

I guess my attachment to the record must have been a superficial one, because it got sloughed off as totally as a snake's shed skin. Except that's not an accurate metaphor, because the self that emerged is smaller than the one I had before.

Anyone listening to the singles series she's been releasing?

handsome boy modelling software (bernard snowy), Wednesday, 24 June 2020 13:07 (six months ago) link

One of these songs sounds like "Lose Yourself"

Dug this out after a long while and it still hits the spot. Maybe even better suited for this weird late summer.

it's so good, i want to listen to it all the time

J0rdan S., Thursday, 30 July 2020 19:22 (five months ago) link

Definitely a standout album of the year for me. I still haven't absorbed all of the lyrics yet - its all about the textures of the songs for me.

I'm already nostalgic for the first time I heard this album just before lockdown. It feels like that was a complete different age. What a weird year.
