Happy May…! As the first two months of quarantine stretches into three, it’s been hard to stay up and keep my head high. I feel lucky to still have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, my health, and my partner but man…this has been tough. I’m so glad that I can take my mind off this madness for a second by sharing this month’s First Thursday pick! So, this month’s artist is just like…effortlessly cool. Whether she’s spitting gems in a breezy sing-songy way, smoothly breaking bars apart through moments of sustained enjambment over a funky beat, or singing longingly over indie-rock vibes, she always sounds like she is in control. Please check out this month’s artist Simpson here or below and then check out the rest of my First Thursday picks here.
