It’s such a great song that’s really grown on me. Neck and neck with True Blue on the album imo
Not Strong Enough is one of the best things any of the three of them have done in my opinion, just a perfect song. The “always an angel” bit into Lucy’s solo bit is magnificent, just hits me in the perfect way
It is a perfect song, you’re right. The hook midway through the chorus is the bit that does me every time “Spinning out about things that haven’t happened” or “Half a mind that keeps the other second guessing” in the 2nd chorus.
But, yeah, I also can’t disagree with the “always an angel never a god” bit too. So good
Apparently Lucy was digging her heels in not to include this tune on the album as she didn’t think it was strong enough , but then they added the “always an angel” bit and she caved in. What were you thinking, Lucy??
Riverwise Jr went to a pottery party last week and tried to recreate the cover of Stranger In The Alps in mug form
(dog omitted because “I can only do blobby dogs”)
Didn’t realise Jay Som is playing bass for them
Writes better songs than all three of them imho
she gets some additional producing/engineering credits too so she’s well in the fold
Yeah they’re always bigging her solo stuff up in interviews
I’m so ready for Jay Som’s world domination when boygenius fancy a rest
Does anyone here like Bachelor, the band Jay Som has with Palehound? In fact Palehound is very much in the boygenius/et al sort of thing.
Would love a follow up to Anak Ko.
CW addiction, suicidal ideation
I stumbled across this article which suggests that (a) Please Stay was written to Julien and (b) Graceland Too was written about an imagined future where she’s “no longer a danger to herself or others”. Favor was written by Julien about (someone) being talked down from suicide. These were the three solo songs they chose to sing on their tour just glad that she’s alright for now
listening to them all now, i think i might make myself cry
Yeah I had a bit of a cry reading all of that. What a bunch of fucking heroes
do wish i loved more of their collective output a bit more, but so glad they exist and are as big as they are (and I just straight up adore Lucy also)
Looks to be up now
Excellent! Ordered for the eldest:)
Not really the point re: Graceland Too, but staying up on MD chatting rubbish with Baker sounds like a lovely night.
When they played that in Halifax, everyone started to look around trying to see the moon but it was cloudy out.
