    kill all birds Prestigious

    Speaking Terms is still the one I'm obsessed with haha. The guitars and vocal melodies are so fucking good.

    Golden Dream hasn’t gotten enough love, vocal melody in that song is so great

    so much I think Prestigious

    I’m pretty well enamored with this record. Pristine might be my favorite, but there isn’t a bad or even mediocre song here.

    I like this a lot, the songs are super well-written in terms of guitar and all the vocal melodies are perfect, a lot of bands just try to write catchy melodies that have no relationship to the narrative and she doesn't do that at all and it's gr8

    but I really wish she would play more with rhythms and tempos and dynamics haha. there are a bunch of moments where imo the songs could be improved by a different rhythmic delivery

    also this def sounds like soccer mommy lol, they're moody in the same sort of way, even tho the actual chords they use / influences they draw from are way different you can't really tell in the end cause their songs are structurally and thematically similar

    They were great tonight but damn they have some shitty fans

    I never thought I’d feel the need to complain about people being too rowdy at a Snail Mail show

    Saw them in Leeds last night and they were great.

    It’s scary how talented she is at only 19 and I thought the whole band, particularly the drummer, did a great job of getting over the songs in a live environment. It wasn’t just a case of playing everything as it was on the record and they changed up a few things.

    The room was very respectful for a solo version of Anytime as a closer and you could really see her pouring her heart out. Then they came back out as a 3 piece to do a really fun cover of Closing Time by Semisonic. They looked like they were having a good time, which must be difficult given how intensively they’ve been touring this year all over the place.

    When I met Lindsey after my show in July I commented on the rigorous touring schedule and she said "yeah, it's gross"

    I saw Lindsey and crew again tonight. It’s absolutely insane how in about a year she went from selling out a 125 capacity venue in Chicago to selling out a 1,100 capacity venue. Her whole current tour is sold out I believe so I assume with her next record she will be playing 2,000+ rooms, which is insane!
