Snail Mail

Indie Rock, Rock

Right at this moment, 19-year-old Baltimore singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan, who records as Snail Mail, is surrounded by uncommon excitement in the indie-rock world. As with fellow acclaimed newcomers Soccer Mommy and Vagabon, Jordan’s songs radiate emotion, honesty, and a quiet power, though hers are more slowcore-indebted, and she may be an even more special talent overall. Her full-length debut, Lush, released last week via Matador, absolutely deserves the hype. With Bonny Doon.
