ALL the new tracks are damn great imo

as well as the fuller-sounding "i like what you're doin"
no really, these bonus tracks are so great. i love how "alibi", "dui" and "let's fly" triangulate nikkiya's dreamy bohemian air with an incredibly strong melodic sensibility and almost this...grown-woman version of the my boo/swing my way summer-crush aesthetic. love the way she switches into voicebox mode for the second half of "let's fly". "reasonable" does that thing of being massively corny but inexplicably also massively moving and uhhh inspiring i guess? it's a really nice way of looking at life.

i'm trying to upload these to youtube and none of the mp3-to-youtube sites are letting me. i don't understand technology. it's worked fine before.

did ANYONE apart from evan and i download this?

I think this probably speaks to the silliness of a "deluxe edition" mixtape more than anything else. The new songs are great, but people would have been much more likely to hear them if they'd been bundled as their own EP. Also, charging people for a mixtape they downloaded for free is asking a lot, too

yeah Evan otm. If I had loved every single track on the mixtape, I would have gotten this quickly, but there were enough duds for me that I've just been keeping this thread bookmarked as a reminder but haven't actually bothered to get it for weeks.

i paid up readily because i'm happy to spend money on up-and-coming artists who've given me excellent music for free, it was kind of like a belated opportunity to pay her for something i listened to loads. but, here are the new songs
