Before her collaborations with Conor Oberst, The 1975, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker made her the undisputed queen of sad indie folk-pop of the last few years, Phoebe Bridgers made a statement and a splash with this debut record of wry sun-bleached confessional songcraft that’s as funny as it is morbid. Named after a line from the edited-for-TV version of The Big Lebowski, Stranger In The Alps inhabits that same leisurely yet lachrymose Californian mood of stoned numbness and strange sexuality as that film. Making headlines with its diss track Motion Sickness that pulled up shamed songster Ryan Adams for emotional cruelty, the album functions as a stunning collection of lovelorn heartbreak, documenting that abuse as well as the end of her relationship with the drummer and co-writer on most of these songs, Marshall Vore. Receiving a perfect score on its release in 2017 from A.V. Club, Stranger In The Alps also popped up in year-end lists by The Fader, Noisey, Bandcamp and Uproxx. Christopher Macarthur-Boyd and Liam Withnail listened to it this week, and now they’re going to Enjoy An Album. Featuring hot takes and cool points on everything from Bright Eyes, Pixies and Twin Peaks to Angela Deane and Angel Olsen, as well as Tattoo Woohoo/Tattoo Boohoo, Secret Posho and Unhinged YouTube Comment of the Week.
