Bridgers released her second album ‘Punisher’ via Dead Oceans in June. A five-star NME album review called it “atmospheric indie with an undercurrent of anxiety,” adding: “Bridgers has previously stated that ‘Punisher’ explores “crying” and numbness – which is certainly true – but what it most successfully captures is stasis, and an undercurrent of anxiety around what lies in the future.

“The LA songwriter’s ability to paint this lingering feeling of dread so vividly is perhaps the biggest factor in her rapid rise to cultish indie household name; just look at the state of the world right now.”

Bridgers also recently paid tribute to the late cult songwriter Daniel Johnston, performing alongside Beck, Jeff TweedyMaya Hawke, Waxahatchee and more as part of a special livestream, marking one year since Johnston’s death.
