#237: Phoebe Bridgers, “Punisher”

Though it helps, you don’t have to be a 25 year-old millennial to deeply empathise with Phoebe Bridgers’ sophomore album, “Punisher”. The star-studded ensemble of guests (Conor Oberst, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus) and its universal and hauntingly beautiful themes of lost love, impostor syndrome and the end of the world will leave their mark on you. We dare you to try to listen to it only once. +: new tracks by Bob DylanBright EyesHayley Thompson-King, Mike Polizze (Purling Hiss), TiñaThe Fiery FurnacesElephant Stone, Sun on Shade (Heath Fogg from Alabama Shakes), Los Retros, Gum Country, Sports TeamFontaines D.C.Noveller, Jeremy Fetzer, Wilder Maker & Gabriel BirnbaumThomas CsorbaColter WallJohn CraigieNeil YoungWillie NelsonRonnie FaussArlo McKinleySteve Gunn & Cass McCombs, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
