    Y’all didn’t lead me astray! Chinese Satellite and Garden Song for SOTY! (Chinese Satellite hit very very close to home)

    Garden Song made me bawl my eyes out the first time I heard it.

    Chinese satellite is wonderful. It’s one of the very best song of the year.

    I will admit I was initially slightly disappointed by this. I was anticipating something more out there and genre bending. That was my bad. This is much more comparable to Song For Our Daughter or Forklore (two solid albums) than it is to a Fetch The Bolt Cutters or Magdalene. It is very well executed and lyrical. “Chinese Satellite”, “I Know The End” and “Halloween” are my favorite tracks.

    I do feel it should be competing in Folk or simply somewhere other than Alternative. But almost half of the albums that get nominated there I tend to not think belongs.

    Ohhhhh, I don’t think this is folk at all. But I get what you mean if you expected something else and something more out there—-but if you take it for what it is, the album is outstanding I think. but it’s ok if you find it too Normal. But Phoebe judges you.

    I just don’t see how this is “alternative” but Forklore, Song For Our Daughter and St. Cloud aren’t. Just because its aesthetic is darker? It will likely be in my top 15 albums of year. I clearly don’t love it as much as some folks. But it’s a good album.

    I feel like maybe the “alt-folk” vibe comes from the melodies? Idk I just feel like her songs aren’t conventionally “catchy” like they don’t have predictable hooks or verses in them.

    Most folk music isn’t catchy and doesn’t have easy hooks. This is hardly Joanna Newsom. To me, this is pretty straightforward folk music with a bit of rock. I’m fine with it being “Alternative”. I just don’t see how this is Alt but a lot of albums with similar aesthetics are not.

    Garden Song, Punisher, Halloween, Moon Song, Savior Complex, Graceland Too = Indie Folk

    Kyoto, Chinese Satellite, ICU = Indie Rock

    I Know The End = A mix of both (lol)

    I would just say that it’s a singer/songwriter album.
