Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher (2020)

Reason for Listening:
A friend shared interest in the artist after seeing her on SNL. This motivated me to listen to the artist as well.

This track has a very interesting bass sound. ("Garden Song")

"Halloween" also has an interesting bass sound.

I feel like this album is something of a sleeper hit with me. I don't necessearily have an extremely favorite song (no strong "3"s), but the entire album just feels perfect. Well, not a 6.0 but at least good enough to get a 5.2. I think the overall mellow sound with the emphasis on the bass tones makes for a new, yet pleasant listening experience.

Five of the album tracks were released as singles and in my song rating, three of them got a "2" ("Garden Song", "Savior Complex", and "ICU").

Overall Rating: 5.2/5
Favorite Song: "ICU"
