Clairo - Immunity

I didn't expect to fall in love with this in the way that I am. I didn't listen to her until I heard "Bags" a few weeks ago and it's now a tune that's been impossible to get out of my head for the past few days. I've been warm to a lot of the record as well, especially "I Wouldn't Ask You" which makes for such an excellent closer. Didn't know I missed it so bad before it came into my life.

Yes! this is one of the best debut albums of the year. I was watching her genius video explaining the lyrics to “bags” and it might be the first time in those videos I actually see an artist explain a song eloquently.

i really like her melodies, "alewife" and "bags" are both really good

very similar vibe to some of the tracks on last year's now, now album but a bit more subdued overall

listening more and it's largely wonderful. a few moments don't really work for me like the very very VW harpsichord flourishes and choir on "impossible" and the verse in "closer to you" feels underwritten but those are fairly minor complaints. "alewife", "north", "bags", "sofia", and "i wouldn't ask you" all feel like instant classics

also impressed by how seamlessly she does both dreamy alt r&b and indie rock

this thread is subtly sexist and misogynist but the culture isn't ready for that conversation

also in case it isn't clear (apparently it wasn't clear?) I did like this record a lot

it was pretty clear to me, your review was what made me most interested in the album

I know we don't have to choose but give me this over Billie Eilish any day, man.

three months pass...

just getting back to these after quick listen upon its release. Feeling it a lot more now rather than during the summer.

I feel basically the same way the OP does. I was skeptical, didn't particularly love (but also didn't hate) "Pretty Girl" and didn't fall for Immunity immediately. But boy has it grown on me.
