Comments from California

Two Ian Sweet albums in one year sounds reductive to Whitney's talent, but feels both accurate and very exciting.

This is crazy exciting. And if you're enjoying this, and haven't listened to Hours Were The Birds, get on that ASAP. Like, faster than ASAP. Low key one of the best "person and their acoustic guitar" records I've ever heard.

16 comments and no one has called her "Becky with the Goop Hair"? I can't tell if I'm disappointed in all of you, or proud of all of you.

This has absolutely nothing to do with why I'm going to Outside Lands for the first time this year.

To play Devil's advocate, a clinical, journalistic examination of the music is a lot different than using the word in a context of pure enjoyment. In order for a writer to convey the full meaning of the song, they would have to quote it as written. For this girl, she could have fulfilled her dream of singing a Kendrick song on stage without the word.

If the past couple years have been any indication, this will make it to the Supreme Court, where they'll find some way to use it to overturn Brown V. Board of Education.

I saw her in San Francisco a few months ago, and she's amazing. Ready for the eventual album.

It's definitely worth a re-listen. It's definitely got those kinks most first records have, but the potential is enormous. The first time I listened to "It Hurts Until It Doesn't", I just left it on a loop for literally two hours while I watched a presidential primary debate with no sound. I was transfixed. "Lockjaw" ended up being my favorite track from the record, though. And I've appreciated your hypeness about that Snail Mail record, even if I haven't been commenting. It's so fucking good too...

It's hard to call yourself a major fan and get the name of the album wrong but I lost myself in my excitement. But if "Circle Once" is the song I'm thinking it is when they played it live, it's gonna RIP. And the new version of Fat Chance will be a devastating closer. And they had been doing "It Is A Pleasure..." as an opener with just Kristine on guitar, but its track placement makes me think they've reworked it? GAH I'M SO FUCKING HYPED FOR THIS RECORD.

FUCK YES THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING. I have been checking their Facebook page every day since the moment If You Walk A Long Distance dropped and now IT'S HAPPENING. Someone come to my workplace and check on me please. I'm hyperventilating.

The last S.C. record is an underrated gem. And both Gold Motel records are the sound of my every summer. So I am incredibly ready for this. This is gonna rock. Also shouts out to Scott using Twitter for the forces of investigative journalism.
