Jeff's Best of 2021 - #5: Adia Victoria - A Southern Gothic

How is Adia Victoria not the biggest singer on the planet?

I fell for Adia Victoria's work in 2016, when Beyond the Bloodhounds hit the scene. Silences was similarly solid, but it's A Southern Gothic that's really brought her in to her own as a songwriter and performer. This strikes a near-perfect balance of social commentary and traditional musicality, and it's an important and weighty album without feeling like one. It's a very difficult line to toe, and Adia Victoria handles it with ease and grace.

We were excited about this one when it was announced, and I know it exceeded my high expectations. Debuting in the top 10, a lot of other folks agree, too, but she should be massive after this one.

Songs of note: "Mean-Hearted Woman," "Magnolia Blues," "Whole World Knows," "Troubled Mind"

  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.
