boygenius - the record 3/31/23





boygenius is a supergroup that put out a very good EP in 2018. The group is made up of three up and coming female singer-songwriters : Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker. Since that EP came out, Bridgers has kind of "blown up" with a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, a high-profile duet with Taylor Swift, a much-seen SNL performance and becoming half of a celeb couple with actor Paul Mescal.

I think their first full LP is going to be a big hit and they're on the cusp of becoming big stars. The first three tracks just dropped yesterday (one song per lead vocalist) and today they've been given a cover story on Rolling Stone. I think their new stuff is great!

How boygenius Became the World’s Most Exciting Supergroup

On their own, Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus are three accomplished singer-songwriters. Together, they're a one-of-a-kind band powered by friendship, sick books, and sicker songs

Okay, first official music video from the album was released, albeit a very low-budget one. I like the song a lot though.

I really wanted to see them on this tour, but not enough for $1000 festival tickets. I like the new songs a lot.

Well this is certainly one way to spin the highest-profile recognition your album has gotten since its release.

Well they are more aligned with the AOC/Bernie world POV. Itís going to get less publicity than Bridgersí pandemic hypocrisy about shelter in place or her going after Adele. It probably plays well to their base too. I took my niece and her friend to their show in Wilmington. I do like their music but itís not my scene and thank god. People in the crowd were some of most entitled fans I have ever seen. Iím given them a lot of leeway too because most are young enough to not know concert etiquette. The mood just flipped when they took the stage. I was so glad the set ended after an hour and a half.
