I think it's more about her trying a different approach to her songwriting than anything else. Some good stuff on it, but I think it's setting herself up to do more interesting things down the line.

Not listened yet, on my to-do list. Peef caught a great live show, the fucker. Her partner is also making really, really good music.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Don’t love this, sadly. It doesn’t have enough of what I love about her - more contemplative tracks - to balance out the punchier guitar songs, all of which are heavier and darker on this record.

Hopefulessness and Sunday Roast are both really really great, and I really like Walkin on Eggshells too - the opening line is her at her absolute best.

Yeah, I’ve listened to the album a couple of times and don’t really have a desire to go back. There’s some good songs there but it’s just not connecting with me for the most part.

I’m seeing her in July. Maybe hearing these songs live will improve my take on them.
