As anyone who’s heard Turn Out The Lights, Historian, or Stranger In The Alps can attest, Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers are three of the most exciting young singer-songwriters in indie rock.

Outside Lands has revealed the 2018 lineup for its 11th installment in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park August 10-12.
Following a fervent 2017 edition of Gorillaz, The Who, and Metallica headlining, 2018 boasts a hefty onslaught of acts, and although the headliners see earlier appearances in the festival season — The Weeknd at Coachella and Janet Jackson at both Panorama and FYF Fest — the lineup remains rife with talent and excitement.
The Weeknd is set to perform, where he’s likely to play out his recent slew of new material which features the aid of Nicolas Jaar, Daft Punk‘s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and Gesaffelstein. Both Florence + The Machine and Janet Jackson front the bill with performances that will be nothing less than excellent and the lineup also promises a plethora of beloved dance acts. From ODESZA, Chromeo, and Claptone, to DJ Snake, Jamie xx, Tycho, CHVRCHES, James Blake, Gryffin, Lauv, and Whethan, Outside Lands is a music lover’s oeuvre in its late-summer installment.
More information and tickets, which are available starting at 10 a.m. PST April 5, can be found here.

Last month, Lucy Dacus announced her sophomore album, Historian, and released its first single, the blisteringly good “Night Shift” — we interviewed her about it — and today she’s back with another song from it, “Addictions,” alongside a video that she directed herself. The song is a wistful rumination about the kind of repetitive … More »
Well gang, we’re halfway through December, 10 days out from Christmas, heading into the third-to-last weekend of the year. You sick of lists yet? Haha, jk. You are a Stereogum reader, and you know the concept of “list season” doesn’t apply here. We do this every damn week, all year long. Sure, the clock is … More »
Not many artists had as good a year as Lucy Dacus did in 2016.
