Thoughts:

Snail Mail is an indie music project of Maryland’s Lindsey Jordan. I hadn’t heard of Snail Mail before the big buzz about this album’s release so I decided to check it out.  The music has a 1990s sound reminiscent to me of something like Letters to Cleo or Velocity Girl, but also more contemporary artists like Girlpool and Clairo.  Songwriting is Jordan’s strong suit with some impassioned lyrics on love and love lost.  She also makes some pretty intense videos as you can see below.
