Sidney Gish – No Dogs Allowed

Boston’s Sidney Gish is a distinctly 2018 kind of songwriter. The 20 year-old has quietly been developing a voice for absurdist, meme-as-music songs through YouTube and BandCamp since 2015, but No Dogs Allowed, her sophomore album, is an internet breakthrough.

Like Clairo, early Frankie Cosmos or Car Seat Headrest, Gish’s career exists almost solely on the internet, but gone are the days that would be a knock. With its MS Paint cover aesthetic, No Dogs Allowed is deceptively clever bedroom pop that puts Gish’s neuroses front and center.

On standout track “Sin Triangle,” Gish’s lyricism and deft skill of self-roasting is on full display. “Two-faced bitches never lie / And therefore I never lie,” she sings overtop a laptop lounge rock joint that feels effortlessly cool.

Every nook and cranny of No Dogs Allowed is filled with earworms and it’s not hard to fall in love with it.
