Aldous Harding remains delphic, enigmatic, a bit sunnier (than her 2017’s Party), though no less peculiar.

THE NATIONAL: I NEED MY GIRL

Matt Berninger, the oaken baritone singer of The National, is like, as Pitchfork said: a Cary Grant interpretation of Leonard Cohen. Or I’d say: the Neil Diamond of indie rock.

ROBERT SMITH, MARY POOLE, & LOVESONG

Robert Smith penned “Lovesong” as his wedding present for Mary Poole in 1988. The two are still together, their rock ‘n’ roll marriage bucking the odds and showing no signs of, well, disintegrating.
