MITSKI’S ‘BE THE COWBOY’

Mitski’s Be The Cowboy landed at No. 3 on Uproxx’s 2018 critic poll’s best albums list. I wrote about the album, and how “being the cowboy” isn’t just a reference to a cutesy album name, but a survival mechanism.

PHOEBE BRIDGERS: STRANGER IN THE ALPS

Phoebe Bridgers’ Stranger in the Alps was the album I looped pretty much exclusively as I became acquainted with New York City. I interviewed Phoebe and wrote an essay about my experience with the album and the city.

NOAH GUNDERSEN

Noah Gundersen's record WHITE NOISE is a shift from his previous work both stylistically and contextually. I spoke to Noah about the album and the absolute bedlam of being in your twenties.
