Featured Release This Week From Snail Mail + Tracks Top 30

Aug 20, 2018

Lindsey Jordan turned nineteen in June, shortly after the release of her buzzworthy debut full-length album as Snail Mail.  The album is Lush, the follow up to the Snail Mail EP Jordan had released on a small local label when she was sixteen. The Ellicot City (a suburb of Baltimore), Maryland native began her classical guitar training at age five, and became involved in the local music scene in Baltimore as a teenager.  Her lyrics are personal and relatable.  For example, the broken relationship song "Heat Wave" (video below).  According to Jordan:  "I broke it off...and wrote this song.  I was just so desperate to just get the way I was feeling out onto paper....It was almost kind of painful....Towards the end of writing the record, I became better at dealing with my emotions."
