Meg Baird is the woman behind Hand Habits. For those unfamiliar with her work, she is the lead guitarist for Kevin Morby’s band and she ca flat-out rip. Placeholder is the follow up to 2017’s Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void). This new tracks sounds a little more fleshed out, a little bigger and a whole lot better than her debut. Here’s some info from the PR team.

The name placeholder stems from Meg’s fascination with the undefinable. Their songs serve as openings — carved-out spaces waiting to be endowed with meaning. As a lyricist, Meg is drawn to the in-between, and the songs on this new album primarily confront the ways in which certain experiences can serve as a stepping stone on the road to self-discovery. “A big aspect of my songwriting and the way I move through the world depends on my relationships with people. The songs on placeholder are about accountability and forgiveness,” Meg says. “These are all real stories. I don’t fictionalize much.”
