Snail Mail

By: Laurie Gallardo

Lindsay Jordan takes us through the varying stages of love – namely the maelstrom of emotions in the not-so-lucky-in-love department – on Valentine, the second LP by Snail Mail. The narrative winds through the grief, unrequited feelings, burning desire…all in bigger, broader pop strokes, and Jordan’s incredible voice revealing a soul that’s weathered the hellish storm and came out the other side to tell the tale.

Snail Mail’s tour makes a stop in Austin for a show tonight, Monday May 2, at ACL Live at the Moody Theater. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. with Brisbane band The Goon Sax.

And it’s the spot where the Austin Blues Society Gathering […]
