Shutdown/shut-in Spring gives us time to linger, at breakfast, over Oatmeal with cinnamon, organic Wegman’s blueberries, bananas, soy milk, and the May 25, 2020 issue of New Yorker. New Yorker magazine is like an old friend that waits for you, picking up the conversation on new/known people places and things. This morning we owe a credit once again to the much esteemed and worthy periodical. Thanks to the May 25 issue, we have Phoebe Bridgers on our new music Durham Cool plate. Lyrically mature, vocally nuanced, and yes a perfect accompanist to teenage lust/angst. Did I mention great hair and perfect features? The best feature is of course, Phoebe’s brilliant mind.

Listened to, I know the End, on a short drive home from a State Park hike the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I was arrested on the spot. Unable to go inside after she strummed the first chord and sang the opening lyric. Is there anyone else contemporaneously writing such damn good lyrics today? Very subtle rhyming lines aside no one more deadpan good than Phoebe Bridgers when she taps the muse right in the marrow.

Quite a bit of chatter about the Phoebe Quarantine PJ wardrobe consistency. Most likely Occum’s razor tells us to land on songs cut in one day or she has a few pair of the same pajamas. Who is not guilty of wearing the same pajamas one day to the next.

This Paste Studio session is sonically beautiful. First credit goes to Phoebe’s angelic tone, second to the sound engineer. This is the session that made me a fan. Dressed Manhattan lite in her Doc Martens and black dress with her Harrison, Harry Potter slide guitarist accompanist. Nicely done all around. 2015 7″ release produced by Ryan Adams to now the artist is evolving but so far remaining faithful to pure.
