Every moment of this album, she sounds like she's absolutely singing her little heart out. The voice / instrument balance on this recording is much better than on the band's self-released (red) album. Santa Cruz says, "Go, Slugs!"
Favorite track: Slug.
Snail mail is the lo-fi bedroom pop project of singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan. She's a thoughtful lyricist who tends to buck the 'woe is me' cliche in favor of a wider, balanced perspective focused on forward motion. This refreshing view is shared over dreary textures, slow moving guitar work and Jordan's effortlessly melodic vocal presence.
