Last week I recommended one song off this album but this week I felt the need to recommend the entire project. A 6 track EP released in 2018, this short yet powerful album has rocked my world since it’s release and has never left my recently played list on Spotify. Boygenius (the name of the group and the album) was formed by indie singer/songwriters Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, and Phoebe Bridgers after touring together. They wrote, recorded, and produced this album in 3 days, then toured it around the US for a year. 

Julien’s gut-wrenchingly honest lyrics, Lucy’s aggressive musical style, and Phoebe’s stylistic mediation form a trinity of perfection. It’s stylistically varied enough to show a solid balance between all three artists each having appropriate moments of independence that highlight the flawless hegemony of their styles. Encapsulating Boygenius in such a short tracklist is a feat in itself. The bombastic opening and stripped out closer sandwich 4 heart tearing songs that leave me constantly singing “I WANNA BE EMACIATED”.

All songs are available to Point Radio DJs for streaming on ZETTA.
