Music today has been singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus who interestingly was featured on both Lamacq’s and Laverne’s show with tracks from her latest album Home Video (2021). Their picks are quite different but somehow they cross over here. Dacus is also part of the trio boygenius with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker (a record I really like). Bridgers has really taken off, Dacus has obviously been getting a lot of support on 6 Music but when Laverne mentioned boygenius she failed to mention third member Julien Baker who also makes great albums. Why do they do this, mention the ones who don’t need a mention and forget the ones who do? If you like Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, you’ll like Lucy Dacus. If you don’t know any of them, listen to the boygenius EP (2018) and the latest albums by all three of them, Lucy Dacus’ Home Video (2021), Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher (2020) and Julien Baker’s Little Oblivions (2021).
