” Remember how surprised we were when Maggie Rogers released Surrender”. It put the world on notice that she was a high energy pop-rock star, even though she had folk roots. Its fascinating when someone with a folk background fins her Debbie Harry/Liz Phair groove. Her new record is buoyant pop from beginning to end” Beats Per Minute 2023
