Punisher by Phoebe Bridgers


Although Phoebe Bridgers joked that her sophomore album Punisher wasn’t much of a departure from her debut solo, Stranger in the Alps, this album does wonders with the landscapes it is able to cross and create. While Bridgers’ trademark pessimism still plays a dominant role on this album, when paired with upbeat music, such as on “Kyoto,” it provides a striking contrast that gives the album dimension. The whole album feels more like an anthology, with each song providing its own story, rather than one cohesive narrative. Because of this, every song of Punisher is captivating and transportive for the listener. It’s easy to get caught up in each song and lose track of time, not unlike getting caught up in a good book.
