Laura Stevenson has quietly been putting out some of the best rock records year after year and not enough people are paying attention. This is me doing my part, aside from featuring her newest, self-titled album in Recommended Albums of August 2021. Album highlight “Don’t Think About Me” has been stuck in my head for the better part of a week, seamlessly tapping into the liquid memory/nostalgia banks of my childhood, hearing alt rock & pop songs from moody singer/songwriters on the radio in the 90s. Feeling the dry heat from the car vents and the carpeted seats and my boots still soaked from snow. Alongside pulling on my nostalgia strings, the song and album itself is one of the better rock records of the year – don’t let it slip through your fingers. And while you’re at it, check out Stevenson’s last few records too. You won’t regret it.
