Punisher is the hotly-anticipated second solo album by US indie rock artist Phoebe Bridgers. It follows her acclaimed debut album – 2017’s Stranger In The Alps – and her 2018 collaboration with Lucy Dacus and Julian Baker – Boygenius – and hugely successful partnership with Conor Oberst as Better Oblivion Community Center in 2019. Her new solo effort concerns itself with the impact of love on our lives, and looks set to cement Bridgers as one of the cleverest songwriters of her generation. Punisher brings together quite the guest list, too, with spots from members of Bright Eyes, Warpaint and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Punisher is available in an indie store exclusive blue-green swirl vinyl.
Punisher will, indeed, punish you – but it is so, so worth it.
Phoebe Bridgers is back. Although, to be fair, I’m not sure she ever left. Not content with 2017’s Stranger In The Alps, a debut that found itself no small amount of critical acclaim, she went on to record two other projects whilst recording her sophomore album. Both 2018’s boygenius and 2019’s Better Oblivion Community Centre were lauded, leaving Bridgers one of the most talked-about figures in indie-folk today. Punisher is a dense second record, both lyrically and sonically. At its core, the album deals with Bridgers’ relationships – her friendship, family and romance – and the power dynamics therein. The most accomplished moment for me on the album, though, is the ending. Uplifting, funny and devastating by parts, it’s the work of an artist who can demolish her listener with almost comic ease. Punisher will, indeed, punish you – but it is so, so worth it.
