Totally Mild’s second album, Her, is a shiny, perfect slab of indie pop, with the self-confessional lyrics and vocals of lead singer Elizabeth Mitchell. Here’s what Mitchell said about the album:
“Her is a record of failure and victory, new desire, stale romance, queer domesticity and what comes when the party is over. I was torn between a new domestic life and the impulse to tear it all away with bad choices. I fell in love, but I wrestled for independence. I was always trying to prove that I didn’t need anyone; my wife, my friends, my band. Her is a document of a woman struggling with the idea of potential. We are told that we could be limitless, but we wrestle with unseen personal and structural walls.”
We have it on a translucent green vinyl, and it’s one of our favorite albums of 2018 so far.
