A few years back at SXSW, I was making my way from Hotel Vegas to Waterloo Records. Along the way, I popped into Red 7 to take in a set by Mitski after hearing the single, Townie. I remember standing there thinking, this woman is going to be something special; whether it be appreciated by few or many.

Well, we all know how that’s turned out. After spinning Stuffed & Ready for a couple of months, it’s hard not to see the same trajectory for Cherry Glazer’s frontwoman, Clementine Creevy. There is an energy that pulses through the album; reminiscent of when great alternative rock was played on the radio.

The 10 tracks see Creevy looking in the mirror for her inspirations. ā€œIā€™m a much more weary and perhaps a more cynical woman who believes you need to figure your own self out first.ā€ The album is shot out of a canon with the first four tracks culminating in Wasted Nun & That’s Not My Life. Both seem to push back on misconceptions of how Creevy wants to be viewed as a woman in the music industry. The album downshifts with Isolation and Self Explained before revving back up again, with the penultimate Stupid Fish really delivering the goods.

This is a great album and worth your time. They are sure to be one of the must-see bands down in Austin this year. They certainly are for me.
