Snail Mail – “Valentine”

It’s been a minute since Snail Mail released Lush, one of the best debuts from an artist in recent memory. After touring hard behind that album, Lindsey Jordan stepped out of the spotlight. The album’s official biography (written by friend and fellow musician Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee) notes that Jordan went to a rehab facility in Arizona, which is where she started to sketch out the shape of her follow-up despite not having access to her instruments. Earlier this year, Jordan went to Dur...

Snail Mail Is A Songwriter, Not Just Another Girl In A Band

Lindsey Jordan graduated from high school in the spring. This summer, she releases her debut album, Lush, with the band Snail Mail, courtesy of the venerable indie rock label Matador Records (a.k.a., the people who brought us a Liz Phair album in the '90s that changed the lives of a lot of women...among other accomplishments). If that makes it sound like Jordan is an overachiever, you should know she's been taking guitar lessons since she was 5. One of her teachers and mentors is Mary Timony, w...

Coachella 2018: Cardi B twerked and Portugal. The Man rocked on Sunday

It was a sleepier-than-usual Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and the pregnant hip-hop singer of the moment twerked on stage and all was good in the world again. That’s my theory, at least, and if you weren’t there to see Cardi B, whose debut album “Invasion Of Privacy” debuted at No. 1 this week, just after her pregnancy revealing appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” well you’ll have to take my word for it, won’t you? Cardi B only played half an hour on a set she’s been c...
