here i'm making a maggie rogers thread. her album from earlier this year is so... pleasant, in a way i should maybe find suspicious or cloying but it's a space i love spending a ton of thoughtless time in anyway. her newest single leaves the campfire behind and launches itself right into fleetwood mac-core, and is so wonderful that i had to make this thread

I liked that first single she put out (whatever it was) but then found the album really dull after one listen; but I'm willing to give it a shot again.

I'm assuming this song isn't a 2 Live Crew remake

you could probably gather that from it having a different title and definite articles

I liked the album a lot. I seem to recall describing it as being music for Starbucks, but somehow in a good way?

It's been awhile since I heard it, but I remember really liking about half the album and being really bored by the other half. This single is pretty good though and bodes well for more.

this woman is gonna have a crazy long and successful career. heard it in a past life was an amazingly self-assured and well-crafted bit of festival pop, highlighted for me by the slight touch of rocksteady in 'overnight,' and the sun-drenched guitar on 'back in my body.'

haven't heard the new song yet.

she is i think better live than on record - i really enjoyed her show back in may and that "fallingwater" snl performance still slaps. nothing else on the album for me reached the same pinnacle as that song but i still really liked it and i guess it'll make my year end list.

this new song is fine, kind of shaggy and loose and not my favourite but as a bookend to the era it works.

yeah, really surprised by these songs' longevity for me - way moreso than other MOR radio pop of recent months, from Carly Rae Jepsen on down
