Shit I Missed Last Year and This Year’s Honorable Mentions
Shit I Missed:
Dresage – “Renaissance (Live at the Chalet)”
My first encounter with this clip was as a submission in my inbox last December. I didn’t secure the premiere, but was able to set up an interview with the artist, Dresage. The article I wrote about our exchange remains my favorite thing I have ever written—in it, I describe the majesty of this live recording of “Renaissance.” The LA-based artist is a complex person whose depth comes through effortlessly in the music she makes. Not to mention her talent spread to other projects too; she is half of the duo More Giraffes (alongside Hark Madley) which put out an EP this year too, and she is always working on other commercial ventures. Big moments await her as Dresage continues to grow.
