Snail Mail is the moniker of guitar hero Lindsey Jordan. Although Jordan’s songs are expressed loosely and nonchalantly, she walks somewhat against the current trend of contemporary indie-prodigies. Instead of capitalizing immediately on the buzz of Snail Mail’s first EP Habit, her stunning debut Lush materialized very carefully and gradually over two years. The result: songs that don’t wallow in angst, but capture, observe and celebrate existence with disarming wit and honesty.
With only guitar, voice and a healthy dose of wry humor, Snail Mail tells more stories per song than most artists do across whole records.
