Can't wait!!!


I had never heard of Bridgers before, but after going to a Connor Oberst concert and seeing her open for him she blew me away! Loved her singles and can't wait for the full thing!!!

Something original, something real


Everything I have heard from Phoebe so far has made me completely certain that this album will blow your mind. The authenticity in the way she writes is incredible. Her lyrics are strangely specific and yet completely vague, like she is telling you story you should already know. The singer songwriter is the most organic and pure form of music maker you can get and Phoebe embodies that idea.

Basically Perfect


Alright, yeah, no album is "perfect." But this one comes pretty close. It's so good, I love almost everything about it... hard to beat the original version of "Georgia"'s acoustic soul, but Phoebe really produces an awesome atmosphere with her refined, finished edition featured in this album. The only thing I didn't like was the duet in "Killer"... the guy's voice sounds overly lofty, old and strange. I'd love to hear a version of it where it's either a single track of Phoebe's vocals, or one where Phoebe harmonizes with herself by using two vocal tracks, like she did with many of the other songs on the album. All in all though, there's a ton to like. The songs really resonate on an emotional level, and they feel very meaningful. This is a wonderfully cohesive, poetic, stirring album. There's a relationship here between the instrumentation, the vocal tonalities, and the lyrics that's pretty difficult to find in other contemporary music — popular or not. It's clear that this is the product of much physical, mental, and emotional effort put in on the part of the artist. It's just great.

About Phoebe Bridgers

A Los Angeles, California-based folk-rock artist with a dreamy and hook-filled indie pop heart, Phoebe Bridgers' evocative lyrics and commanding voice have drawn comparisons to artists like Julien Baker, Conor Oberst, and Julia Jacklin. A graduate of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, Bridgers released her debut 7", "Killer," in 2015 via Ryan Adams' Pax AM label. A trio of buzzworthy singles, "Smoke Signals," "Funeral," and "Motion Sickness," appeared in early 2017 in anticipation of the release of her Dead Oceans-issued debut LP, Stranger in the Alps, which arrived later that September. ~ James Christopher Monger
