Maybe itʼs the fact that heʼs made it this far, despite every roadblock life could throw his way, that has instilled such a newfound confidence in Greenʼs songwriting; maybe itʼs coming to understand what it means to live with a bipolar diagnosis; or maybe itʼs just that heʼs a father now and really, really misses his family while on tour. Regardless of the motivation behind it, Would You Still Be In Love is undeniably Anthonyʼs most honest and best work to date. Artistically speaking, songs like “Changing Shape” and “Youʼre So Dead Meat” are among the records strongest displays of growth for Green, with his earth-quivering, signature vocals layered effortlessly atop delicate and timeless arrangements. He also brilliantly covers the song “Love” from the 1973 Disney film Robin Hood, and does so in such a genuine way that youʼd think it was penned by his own hand. But the moment Anthony shines the brightest is also the realest, on album closer “Real Magic.” The demons Anthony faces across Would You Still Be In Love are the same heʼs been fighting all along, but here, he takes solace in understanding how alike we all are in these emotional shortcomings. Itʼs a metaphor for the record and really, where Anthony Green is at in his life today; itʼs about appreciating what youʼve got regardless of the insurmountable odds that may stand in your way.
Crockpot Pop. It's not a term you'll be instantly familiar with, but it is a somewhat perfect descriptor of Philadelphia trio Queen of Jeans. Intentionally tongue-in-cheek, the self-ascribed term was coined to chronicle the haphazard nature of the band's core ingredients: a slew of sounds, styles, eras, and influences which has prompted comparisons to Roy Orbison, Cocteau Twins, Grouper, and Mitski.
