Jeff's Best of 2021 - #10: girl in red - if I could make it go quiet

I shouldn't like girl in red as much as I do.

That's not entirely fair, but it's not entirely my fault, either - when you're an artist that is synonymous with teenage lesbianism, a middle-aged heterosexual male with a mortgage ain't the target demographic. And yet.

girl in red excels because it's very straightforward. It's definitely mainstream alt-rock in many ways, but there is an absolutely emo-style confessional perspective here that sets this album apart from most others. "You Stupid Bitch" is so direct, "Hornylovesickmess" so brutally honest, it's honestly hard not to be a little charmed even while you want to ask if she's doing okay. And yeah, "Serotonin" is amazing, but there is a ton of subtle parts to the lyrics that make it stand out.

If you've missed out on this one up to now for whatever reason, fire it up. Even if you don't love every song, I'm pretty certain you'll come out with a few new favorites for the year.

Songs of Note: "Serotonin," "You Stupid Bitch," "hornylovesickmess," "Did You Come?"

  1. Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
