A few years ago, while in a tour van somewhere in Idaho, the members of Chastity Belt-Julia Shapiro, Gretchen Grimm, Lydia Lund, and Annie Truscott-opted to pass the time in a relatively unusual fashion: They collectively paid one another compliments, in great and thoughtful detail. This is what we like best about you, this is why we love you. I think of that image all the time, the four of them opening themselves up like that, by choice. It's hard to imagine other bands doing the same. But beyond their troublesome social media presence-see: the abundance of weapons-grade duck face, the rolling suitcase art-and beyond the moonlit deadpan of say, "IDC," lies, at the very least, an honesty and an intimacy and an emotional brilliance that galvanizes everything they do together. Which is a fancy way of saying: They're funny, but they're also capable of being vulnerable. "Giant Vagina" and "Pussy Weed Beer," two highlights from their aptly titled 2013 debut, No Regerts, were immediately preceded by a sublime yet easily overlooked cut named "Happiness." I saw a younger, still unsettling version of myself all across 2015's Time to Go Home.
