SNAIL MAIL - LUSH VINYL (LP)
Release Date: 8th June 2018
The stunning debut album from Snail Mail, aka the indie-rock imagining of Lindsey Jordan, is one of the most mature records you're likely to hear from an eighteen year-old. Having released the extremely promising Habit EP a couple of years ago (then just sixteen!), Jordan has been putting together this gem of a record back in her native Baltimore - and what a debut it is! Lush sparkles with clarity and confidence rarely achieved from its guitar heavy indie-rock bangers to acoustic guitar confessionals. Incredible stuff from an incredibly talented young woman!
FFO: Soccer Mommy, Kississippi, Frankie Cosmos, Lomelda
"Snail Mail’s full-length debut album, Lush is released on Matador Records. It’s a debut for the record books — a refreshing marvel of songwriting and technical composition, that’s both cohesive and explosive — Jordan's voice rises and falls with electricity throughout, spinning with bold excitement and new beginnings at every turn. Lush feels at times like an emotional rollercoaster, only fitting for Jordan’s explosive, dynamic personality. Growing up in Baltimore suburb Ellicot City, Jordan began her classical guitar training at age five, and a decade later wrote her first audacious songs as Snail Mail. Around that time, Jordan started frequenting local shows in Baltimore, where she formed close friendships within the local scene, the impetus for her to form a band. By the time she was sixteen, she had already released her debut EP, Habit, on local punk label Sister Polygon Records. For fans of Waxahatchee, Alvvays and Veronica Falls."
