#10 Flying Out favourite albums of 2021
Lucy Dacus was on the cusp of something special, but was hardly a household name, when she played her scorching show at the Tuning Fork here a couple of years back. On Home Video, it's clear that Dacus' moment has well and truly arrived, and thankfully her ever-increasing fan base agree!
The new full-length from Lucy Dacus, Home Video. This new gift from Dacus, which features vocal contributions from boygenius bandmates Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers, was built on an interrogation of her coming-of-age years in Richmond, VA. Many songs start the way a memoir might—“In the summer of ’07 I was sure I’d go to heaven, but I was hedging my bets at VBS”—and all of them have the compassion, humor, and honesty of the best autobiographical writing. Most importantly and mysteriously, this album displays Dacus’s ability to use the personal as portal into the universal.
