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 credit 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.

We explore influences, Phoebe’s interpretations of emotively strong songs (plastic trees), and the Replacements-Ryan Adams Phoebe connection.

Phoebe Bridgers – I Know The End (Official Video)

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

Paul Langan

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.

CR’s Take OVERALL SCORE 73 CR RECOMMENDED WIRELESS PORTABLE HEADPHONES OnePlus Buds Pro Headphone This wireless Bluetooth model from OnePlus delivers very good sound quality and active noise reduction, combining elements of in-ear and earbud earphones. These earphones have an isolating design and an ambient sound monitoring feature; they will provide some muffling and electronic canceling of external noises and reduce the amount of sound that escapes from the earpieces. As such, they are best for those who want highly portable earphones that reduce the noise they hear from their surroundings or don’t want the sound from the earpieces to disturb others.

A green plastic watering can
For a fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself
It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out
She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
On the girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins
And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears
She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can’t help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out
And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time, all the time

Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street (Live) | Vevo DSCVR


Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music. It’s a real skill to wax forlorn without submitting to the depths of despair. In the last two years, Phoebe Bridgers has shown us just how articulate she can be regarding the troubled side of life while still touting the small joys that mark most day-to-day experiences. Again and again, the singer-songwriter revels in the marvels of the emotional deets that shape who we are. After critics erupted over the eloquence of the 23-year-old’s ‘Stranger In The Alps’ (get the ‘Lebowski’ reference?), the Silver Lake-based Bridgers went through a wave of Joni-Jackson comparisons. Elements of the masters dot her songs, but some of her more recent heroes is Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek and Elliot Smith – tender wordsmiths whose best work is both vulnerable and poised. If you know Bridgers’ “Smoke Signals” and “Motion Sickness,” you might’ve heard her “Scott Street” before, too. But not like this. Our DSCVR performance turns the tune, inspired by a sunset stroll through her Echo Park hood, into an epic lament. Swirling fiddle lines and cloudy guitar flourishes prove the singer knows exactly what she needs to bolster her designs as she closes with a farewell line of “don’t be a stranger.” Masterful.

Trying to keep the analysis down to 3 words: Cathartic, Viking, and Resounding. We tried for brevity and arrived at Irish all the same. Hot damn. Some may need a cigarette, but those who don’t smoke cigarettes choose their relief and/or smudge with a sacred palo santo wood. Damn, this performance of this well-written song is great. The drummer felt it, too, as he kept his eyes closed. Phoebe’s backup vocals-yes, Julian’s lead thrashing guitar, Lucy’s restrained lead vocal, and the ancillary players from Phoebe’s band, drummer, and rhythm guitarist, Nashville-based songwriter Harrison Whitford (looks like Daniel Radcliffe).


You put salt in the wound
And a kiss on my cheek
You butter me up
And you sit down to eat
You add insult to injury
You say you believe in me
But you haven’t decided
About taking or leaving me
But you take and you take
Like silks up my sleeve
Tied corner to corner, never-ending
Trick after trick, I make the magic
And you unrelentingly ask for the secret
Neck full of mockingbirds
All calling your name
I tried to sing it all back
Like I heard it, it doesn’t sound the same
I’m gnashing my teeth
Like a child of Cain
If this is a prison, I’m willing to burn my own chain
But you take and you take
Like silks up my sleeve
Tied corner to corner, never-ending
Trick after trick, I make the magic
And you unrelentingly ask for the secret
They say the hearts and minds are on your side
They say the finish line is in your sights
What they don’t say is what’s on the other side
They say the hearts and minds are on your side

How does one arrive at Phoebe Bridgers by skipping over imprimaturs and influences like the Replacements and their last album, All Shook Down?  One cannot look at Ryan Adams and not look at Paul Westerberg.   Phoebe Bridgers is a better songwriter, though not as prolific as Ryan Adams.  Ryan Adams was a shadow influence on one of Phoebe’s most Replacements-like songs.

Phoebe Bridgers – I Know the End (Official Video)


 Lyrics: Somewhere in Germany but I can’t place it Man I hate this part of Texas Close my eyes, fantasize Three clicks and I’m home When I get back I’ll lay around Then I’ll get up and lay back down Romanticize a quiet life There’s no place like my room But you had to go I know, I know, I know Like a wave that crashed and melted on the shore Not even the burnouts are out here anymore And you had to go I know, I know, I know Out in the park we watch the sunset Talking on a rusty swing set After a while you went quiet  And I got mean I’m always pushing you away from me But you come back with gravity And when I call you come home A bird in your teeth So I gotta go I know, I know, I know When the sirens sound you’ll hide under the floor But I’m not gonna go down in my hometown in a tornado I’m gonna chase it I know, I know, I know I gotta go now I know, I know, I know Driving out into the sun Let the ultraviolet cover me up Went looking for a creation myth Ended up with a pair of cracked lips Windows down scream along To some America First rap country song A slaughterhouse, an outlet mall Slot machines, fear of God Windows down, heater on Big bolt of lighting hanging low Over the coast everyone’s convinced It’s a government drone or an alien spaceship Either way we’re not alone I’ll find a new place to be from  A haunted house with a picket fence To float around and ghost my friends I’m not afraid to disappear The billboard said The End Is Near I turned around there was nothing there Yeah, I guess the end is here The end is here Follow Phoebe Bridgers:

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars
Oh, it sounds good to me
I said cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall
I wanna be the only one for miles and miles
Except for maybe you and your simple smile
Oh, it sounds good to me
Yes, it sounds so good to me
Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh, it sounds so good to me
Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away
Closer to you
