1 Year After Cape God - Allie X Gifts the Digital Concert on Spotify & Track Xplanations

- Canadian chanteuse Allie X released her LP Cape God last year on February 21, 2020. The supporting tour for the album was subsequently cancelled with the onset of the panini press
- to commemorate, Miss Allie uploaded the full audio of her Cape God Digital Concert to Spotify and shared videos for Life of the Party and Love Me Wrong

[Cut for your browser]

- In addition, she released videos Xplaining her thoughts and the writing process behind each track. This is for my personal fave, Susie Save Your Love

(the boppage in question)

ONTD, have you visited Cape God?

[My further thots]
In a way, this album couldn't have come out at a better time, because it's very introspective and perfect for the reflection and solitude that marked the early quarantine period. It's very cohesive and raw in a way that's not present in her other work. She opened up a bit more about her autoimmune condition, informing the medical underpinning throughout her work, and how her emotions behind being chronically ill informed her coming-of-age. There's a lot going on in this album, mourning the childhood you never had, the constant longing for a home that no longer exists, and the liminal space of an adulthood you feel alienated from.

It's clear it was a body of work meant to take her to a different place in her career and it's a shame that she wasn't able to tour off it and really receive her flowers. She's such a talented, thoughtful artist who's put in the work and I'd hoped to see her get the love she deserved. She's apparently been in the studio and she has a treasure trove of unreleased gems so I hope she has a few more tricks up her sleeve soon.
