“Freaking Love Songs”

I kind of developed my musical style in a vacuum,” Liz Phair once said. “Even though I listen to a lot of stuff, the way I wrote was in my bedroom, really privately.”

Our bedrooms are private places—not in the way your thinking—I mean, that’s true but that’s not what were talking about today. Today we’re talking about the fact that there is something about our bedrooms that inspires creativity. Maybe it’s the privacy or the comfort or the familiarty of the space—who knows?

Her new album #37 is a series of portraits that are moving, odd and oddly affecting.  In this conversation, Pynkie talks to Alex about working as a Nurse during a pandemic, how she got into writing songs and the ghost that haunted her in college. They also talk about their mutual love of the movie Midsommar, Julie Doiran and the importance of not making the same record twice…
