ON THE COVER: BOYGENIUS

The rambunctious energy of Interscope’s boygenius—the acclaimed and Grammy-nominated trio consisting of singer-songwriters Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker—provides a gift of a cover image for this year-end/holiday/Grammy special. Blending indie-rock intensity, folkie harmonies and vivid storytelling, the gifted threesome has virtually invented its own genre, a gorgeously spiky form of Americana. And if Santa asks what they want for this wintry season, it'll probably be to skate far away from us.
