Gush: “I Know the End” by Phoebe Bridgers (again)

I swear when I wrote the last post, I had no idea that this tune would be a single or have a video launch less than 24 hours later.

The strangeness of this video draws you in and… well, I’ll just let you watch it for yourself.

Also, this video is probably the first time you’ve met 72-year-old Lili Hayes, who truly does her own thing. I highly recommend burning an hour of your day on her Instagram. Her son Kevin is full of chuckles and has no shame when bothering and video recording his mom. My own relationship with my grandpa was built on that playful, and slightly annoying reality TV-like surveillance and entertainment factor.

Hayes is no stranger to the music scene, living in LA, Fiona Apple and other notable famous people pop up on her page.


Gush: “I Know the End” by Phoebe Bridgers

Full satisfaction is finding a stranger who confirmed your feelings.

The lushness and dazzling horns made me think of long-time Bright Eyes contributor Mike Mogis. Turns out he mixed the album.

My love of celebrity buzz and seemingly good people connecting is summarized in this article here, but that’s not what this blog is about…

I’ve fell hard for Bridgers’ new album Punisher. I thought maybe it was the COVID mood, but I revisited her first album Stranger in the Alps and still after my new found love of it’s younger sibling, I just don’t like it as much. All this to confirm that Punisher is incredible.

Special acknowledgement to the outro of “I Know the End” and @crescendollsx who is feeling me.
