Reissue Review: Jeremy Enigk, “Return of the Frog Queen”

Sub Pop Records recently reissued Jeremy Enigk’s Return of the Frog Queen, a circa-‘96 solo debut whose first printing remains, justifiably, a much-sought-after cult classic. It also has become, over the years, a rather interesting point of departure from Enigk’s tenure with the on-again/off-again Sunny Day Real Estate and a lightning rod for dialogue about Enigk’s relationship with Christianity. That’s a tall order for any LP but, all these years later, the record still stands up well – and eve...

Members of the Folk Supergroup the Lower Lights Release Solo Albums Evoking the Lonesome West

Not long ago, there was a popular narrative, a seeming consensus , regarding 1980s pop/rock music compared to that of decades surrounding it. Listeners and critics have cited period-specific approaches to instrumentation, recording, mixing, mastering, and songwriting as reasons why many considered this popular music's lowest point. But in the decade since that narrative peaked, a number of well-received albums from artists of rock, pop, dance, and hip-hop have receiv...

Phoebe Bridgers plays beautiful ‘Stranger’ on a luminescent night at the Lodge Room

[See image gallery at buzzbands.la] “Jesus Christ, I’m so blue all the time,” Phoebe Bridgers sings in “Funeral,” not whining or moaning, but in a way that suggests she’s upbraiding herself for being easy prey. It is that subtlety that makes the 23-year-old’s debut “Stranger in the Alps” a special album. There is sad music — the kind that wallows in self-pity (and, often, over-production) and suffocates from mawkishness — and there is Bridgers’ melancholy. Her clever but plainspoken narratives ...
