Phoebe Bridgers releases her debut album ‘Stranger In The Alps’ on Dead Oceans Records. She has been writing songs since age 11, Bridgers spent her teenage years performing at open mic nights and busking throughout her hometown before recording a debut three-song single, “Killer,” with Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio. “Killer” was released on Adams’ Pax-Am label in spring of 2015. So far we’ve heard the first two tracks from plaintive singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers’ imminent debut album  “Smoke Signals” and “Motion Sickness.”

Now she’s sharing the album’s third song, and it’s just as impressive. In keeping with its title, “Funeral” is a dark and mournful ballad about singing at the memorial service “for a kid a year older than me.” There’s a gentle simplicity and grace in these guitar chords and violin accents that resembles some of Bridgers’ talented collaborators and tour mates; think Ryan Adams in his Heartbreaker era or the trembling minimalism of Julien Baker. “Jesus Christ, I’m so blue all the time,” Bridgers sings, “And that’s just how I feel/ Always have, and I always will.”
