Jun 8, 2018Throughout the record, each line is given its own story. Every vocal feels deeply considered and felt, yet nothing is over-rehearsed. She knows precisely when to dial in and when to dial back, when to fully commit to her longing and when to step back and shake her head at it.
Jun 6, 2018For fans who first became acquainted with Jordan’s music around her debut EP Habit, Lush is a continuation of Jordan’s coming of age tale--nostalgia for lost love, the overwhelming sensation of being a rising, young musician and the chaos of getting older. Jordan’s 10-track record parallels the beautiful plain-spoken lyrics and catharsis echoed by artists like Soccer Mommy and Julien Baker.
Jun 7, 2018Even as you nod indulgently to Jordan’s assertion (on “Pristine”) that she’ll never fall in love again (of course you will), even as you worry (in “Golden”) about her a little confronting an ex- by blurting out “I’m not wasted anymore” (are you sure?), there’s an integrity and authenticity to her perspective that commands respect.
Jun 15, 2018Lush is an album that the devoted will take to their hearts and luxuriate in its sadness. Some may decry the lack of variety on show (there’s a definite template to a Snail Mail song and it’s stuck to rigidly on Lush), but it cannot be denied that this is a debut that promises great things to come.
Jun 19, 2018Lush marks the arrival of an immensely talented singer-songwriter who also still has much room to grow. It may not live up to those more exuberant expectations of an instant classic, but it’s still an admirable, skillful piece of music that leaves me excited for what comes next. In this case, Jordan hasn’t finished the race. She’s just arrived at the starting line.
Jun 11, 2018"Pristine", "Let's Find an Out", and "Anytime" are all really strong songs, but they aren't enough to make Lush a good album. What they do is show that Lindsey Jordan has a lot of (the dreaded) potential as a songwriter that she isn't fully realizing yet. The rest of the album is too similar in sound and style to do much besides blur together.

There's nothing pushing the genre, but it excels. Heat Wave is a highlight, her vocals match the beat and give a good building/emotional vibe. Stick is a very emotional song.

Jun 8, 2018This is the fashionable retro-leaning indie rock sound of 2018, plus female fronted - so again, she's in good 'girl with guitar' company thisThis is the fashionable retro-leaning indie rock sound of 2018, plus female fronted - so again, she's in good 'girl with guitar' company this year for sure. Problem is, no element of this music is ear catching enough to really draw you in, so close to slacker which can be great...if you have tonnes of natural charisma and great low key melodies floating about in your head. I'm not sure she has either of those qualities, so rather than sparkling hard like Malkmus she's just pitter-pattered into sputtering soft.… Expand
