I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone

I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone

The music of Seattle's Chastity Belt often feels like internal monologue: plainspoken but personal, lived-in but a little mysterious. Their third album explores scenes of romantic miscommunication (“What the Hell”) and self-doubt (“Stuck”) with hazy grace, mixing lyrical directness with fuzzy, often gorgeous washes of guitar. “Out of the fog and finally feeling fine,” Julia Shapiro sings on “Used to Spend.” “My doubts are all gone and I’m having a pretty good time/Feeling like a champ, but for how long?”
