Lush (2018), 5/10
Valentine (2021), 4.5/10

Snail Mail, the brainchild of Baltimore's guitarist and singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan, debuted at 16 with the EP Habit (2016), containing Thinning, followed by the album Lush (2018), containing her signature songs Pristine and Heat Wave, but mostly a monotonous experience, a repetition of the same themes and the same sound, raw bedroom folk-rock indebted to emo-pop and Cat Power.

Valentine (Matador, 2021), one of the many breakup albums of the era, was more heavily arranged with synths and strings (drowning songs like Ben Franklin) and contained two songs, Valentine and the fragile Light Blue, that redeemed the generally bland poppy sound.
