Following up on the release of the single, Car Alarm; Chicago’s V.V. Lightbody has announced her first album for Nashville’s Acrophase Records. I dig this track a bunch but its far from my normal fare. Something about her voice keeps me coming back. Anyway, she’s going to be down at SXSW. In a perfect world, I’d catch a set in the early afternoon as a greyhound was just starting to ease the pain from the day and night before. Here’s some info on the track below.

““If It’s Not Me,” is my anti-jealousy anthem about not hating the future partner of your current partner. Feeling happy for an ex, although not always easy, feels healthy and mature to me, especially when you aren’t ready to commit — there’s no need to be possessive!

V.V. Lightbody is the solo project of Vivian McConnell, a fixture in the Chicago indie scene. Following up on 2018’s Batching Peach, she has been releasing some new tracks this year. This is my favorite of the lot. Here’s some info the track from McConnell.

I was thinking a lot about death when I wrote this song, and in the moment it helped me to be tongue in cheek about it. The thought of me hypothetically trying to contact everyone in my life to let them know that I’m dying (or about to die?) made me laugh. The chorus pokes fun at being a selfishly dark artist, taking small human moments and exaggerating them into song, i.e. being “set off” by someone’s beauty, staying up all night chatting, exiting a situation because of guilt, etc.”
