laura this album has become so important to me over the past few months & it feels impossible to pick a favorite. every song is soaked in tenderness, and recognizes the feeling of emptying yourself by giving love, and being filled back up by the world around you. how we are always straddling heaviness & lightness. Favorite track: Watergun.

Jay Cohen Heavy Lifter was one of my favourite albums of 2019. This is one of those lovely near-perfect records where I’m truly taken with every song—each is a vignette for a feeling I’ve had before or wish I had. The lyrics are so heartfelt and direct and the melodies they are set to and surrounded in are lush yet organic. A gorgeous must buy.

Brian Miller Hovvdy has the nicest, gentlest sound already, and on these new songs it all just keeps getting nicer and gentler. Favorite track: feel tall.

1999 02:58
can you tell me where you started from? and where you want to end up lightness to heavy mood feel you say the words out reaching up to my mouth how it’s a small town and we’re going around buzzcut wearing a hand-me-down when your younger sister’s around small town and we’re going around propped up on the box spring it’s so hard to make a heart sing it’s so hard to find the real thing how you make me smile and turned around hardly slowing down you’re onto me now i’m on you now cause it’s a small town and we’ll go for a drive prom queen 1999 curtains swing on either side small town and we’re going around

So Brite 03:15
welcome home you say to me a new leaf after I leave tangled up under the trees water on everything i don’t know why that I wanted it to stay like that i knew that everything would change when the light came back once the sun came back what if i start to lose my mind what if i start to lose my shine on the ride home you groove with me a new mood pressed on the seat youtube till we fall asleep the lights on and everything i don’t know why that i wanted it to stay so brite i knew that everything would change with the lights pulled back what if i start to lose my mind what if i start to lose my shine may i carry you to the open air where i swim feels like home stretch my bones sink to the bottom

Cathedral 03:04
looking in the cathedral saw you bent over your knees praying to another dimension i am unaware what beyond you and you are broken perfect and i realize i try my hardest when you don’t expect it trust i’ll calm down always do somehow open my door brighter than before outside maybe never come back here we could stay with our friends maybe never come back here baby we better hover

Lifted 03:13
spend a while take enough time happily follow you southern winter hang out outside cold winters changed your mind lifted feeling better keep your focus i could pick us up if we miss miss your mark find a new start find a new frame that’s what you say lifted you could fall apart but you won’t i’ll come through for you lifted

i take my time when i tell you the deal i lost my mind when you told me you don’t care let it go down the road to someone else one time , nevermind be yourself it’s a long night won’t let it ruin my ride there’s a fine line roll halfway down take a breath of the air i laugh , feel great let my body disappear runaway , on the way to your side of town deep breath , eyes red spent from the sound i don’t wanna see you give up i sit , tip back till i’m able to walk downtown , real fast saw an old friend on the step driveway , hairspray shade from the tree new day , recognize what matters to me new day , talk about what matters to me i don’t wanna see you give up
