Matador found some tremendous success with a young East Coast female artist last year in Lucy Dacus. And as the excellent NY Times piece pointed out, there is no shortage of young talented female artists out there to enjoy. So Matador has added the 18 y/o Lindsey Jordan, aka Snail Mail, to the roster. And based on her 2016 EP and this Tiny Desk concert here, it will be another fine addition to the roster. Here’s a little more info on Lindsey.

Snail Mail’s Habit EP was quickly noticed by both national press outlets and touring bands alike, landing Jordan the kind of attention that most of Mary Timony’s guitar students (yes, for real, she’s been classically trained for over thirteen years AND studied under fellow Matador guitar wiz Timony, while also juggling hockey practice) can only dream of — a New York Times Sunday Arts cover, a Pitchfork Rising feature, a FADER Gen F feature, a spotlight in V Magazine, and tours with Girlpool, Priests, and Waxahatchee.
