    Fantastic album. She's so good. Didn't know if it would be welcome in this thread, but I've been listening to it all day.

    What would you compare her to?

    The obvious comparison is Taylor, but there's a lot of Paramore and Jagged Little Pill era Alanis Morissette influence in this as well.

    Plus some Eilish/Lana Del Rey aesthetic. I can’t recommend this one enough, it’s an easy Album of the Year contender for me.

    Speaking of.... Hayley Williams's latest solo album is probably my favorite thing this year. That's another one I wasn't sure about bringing here, but it's amazing.

    Looked up that Rodrigo girl and she was on SNL at 18. Guess she's a budding mainstream pop icon like Swift

    That's one I need to go back and listen to. I spun through it once and it didn't grab me, but I may have not been in the right headspace for it.

    Over Those Hills, Find Me Here, and My Limb were the songs that grabbed me on the first listen. I've grown to love the entire thing though. Inordinary is probably my current fav.

    Unfortunately I didn't qualify and get an invite. Basically if they determine you are a big fan based on listening history then they send you a promo code. I use Tidal too much so my Spotify history is not representative of my listens.

    I have to wait until Wednesday now, but I would buy scalped for this show. It's on my birthday and seems like a good birthday night.

    Oct 23 is my bday :beerchug:

    Didn’t get a Spotify code either. I listen to Spotify all day but not much MM lately so guess that’s why I didn’t get it. My venue has a presale for tomorrow at least

    Be thankful. Charleston Always gets skipped outside of jam and funk bands, which are my least favorite bands.

    Seems like most bands are skipping Detroit, Lansing, Ann Arbor which is a bummer. Stop playing shit southern states and come play in the cities that delivered this country from evil

    Black midi apparently leaked, or something else happened and it was released last evening which is a day early. It’s out now on all platforms, looking forward to listening.

    I've heard a lot of bad stuff about their live show. But, it's my bday weekend, it's a cool venue, and I haven't been to a show in over a year :ohdear:

    They are high on all time fav list so I guess I just want to check them off if nothing else

    I saw MM about 5 years ago and was pretty disappointed. I thought it may have been because it was outside, but Brand New followed them and sounded incredible so idk.
