Really great set opening for Sharon Van Etten last night. The Joan Armatrenaissance is upon us.

Support slots from a bunch of great bands, amazing singles, fantastic videos, great imagery, great reviews, everything you might want from a new pop star, complete indifference from ILX?

Not entirely. She made the 2017 tracks poll with Baby Luv, which was the first time/place I'd ever heard it or heard of her. And she shows up in the rolling favorites threads too.
I guess people are just waiting for there to be more than one song at a time to talk about?
(Album's streaming on NPR, btw.)

not entirely sure of what to say about this record yet but pretty impressed after one listen

"paradise" and "baby blu" were particularly exceptional
I cannot decide which song I love more: "Golden Cage" has that amazing sax/vocal battle for the lead melodic supremacy, and my favorite use of empty space since James Blake's "Limit to Your Love"; "The Florist" does Coldplay better than even their "A Rush of Blood to the Head" heights (how the fuck has it not been remixed into a massive lights-everywhere IDM stadium-filler, especially after the 2nd verse, when the pre-chorus builds to the chorus?); and the gritty punk-adjacent squal of "In Your Head"; damn, they are all so awesome!
