FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5
FLOCK OF DIMES
Our culture encourages extroversion: go out, be garrulous, and make sure you document it for good measure. But what if you'd rather just be alone? If You See Me, Say Yes, Jenn Wasner's full-length debut as Flock of Dimes, addresses just that as her gorgeous voice glows among layers of guitars, synths, and electronic beats. In an essay she published on Medium, Wasner wrote that the record developed from examining the distance she created from her friends and family in order to pursue the creative life she wanted. It's not so much about introversion as creating and valuing space for yourself, even when it's difficult—alone doesn't always mean lonely. Say yes to this one. Your Friend opens.
