i hope lex is going nuts over this on some parallel universe ilx

piano and the swell of backing vocals in "roll with us" are exquisite

i think i love "candy" the most though, wow that is great

oh shit the album is *out*, brb

this is like a maybe more fully realized version of iconika (but less capital-i Interesting)

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:16 (three weeks ago) Permalink

there are definitely fewer velvet curtains parting at the opening of these songs than on the iconika record

jesus christ there's a "canon in d" sample on "fancy"

She's been pretty popular for awhile now, right (at least in L.A., but her videos have millions of views)? And she produces her own stuff? I remember liking her older stuff with hazier beats much better, but sure, good for her.

this is kind of a weird soup of a bunch of different sounds and trends, kiiara trash electro w a sza R&B patina-pop channeled through industry songwriter school that really all sounds like "Motivation" imo

i am really loving this record huh

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:31 (three weeks ago) Permalink

also i'm having a hard time describing it to other people but that kinda nails it deej

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:31 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Loving this. 'Game' stood out to me the most on first listen.

lol "down low"'s production is so restless

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:15 (three weeks ago) Permalink

down low is maxed out. the bass is pretty punishing throughout this whole alb.

only listened to a few songs so far, but Anti seems like a big influence...or at least "go to town" sounds to me like someone heard "consideration" and didn't realize it was two different singers. excited to check out the one with Konshens

yeah rihanna was the first thing i thought when i fired this up but didnt want to say it lol

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:37 (three weeks ago) Permalink

ha for sure it's probably more notable for someone in this lane to not be influenced by Rihanna

rob, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:42 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yes anti is such a part of the dna now (tho of course that is a pastiche itself cf “needed me” being even better than the real thing Kehlani)

... such a part of the dna now I don’t even notice it, it’s like the air we breathe

(And Kehlani is of course post Rihanna af)

the songwriting on this is self-evidently very strong but on my first listen i thought the production was a little too generic in a way that is in line w/ how it's being described here but viewed less positively. some of this stuff reminded me of like... rita ora's early singles.

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 3 April 2018 20:36 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Pretty sure it's self-produced...from what I remember, her beats used to be more of a focal point than the songs, maybe it's flipped on this?

change display name (Jordan), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 20:41 (three weeks ago) Permalink

theres a generic-ness sure

i like that about it though, kinda what i mean by trash electro

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 20:42 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Well this is a lot of fun

Tim F, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 21:12 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i find myself wishing this was more lush in places... there's something thin and plastic about like "wild beach" or "morning light" or "game" that doesn't quite sell the songs the way they deserve imo (this is a personal prejudice tho)

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 3 April 2018 21:35 (three weeks ago) Permalink

the first 3 songs are really strong tho

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 3 April 2018 21:35 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Whole album is strong!

Rita ora comparison offtm

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Thursday, 12 April 2018 00:50 (one week ago) Permalink

feeling her pg-13 raps, flow on them is kinda nicki but without the OTT nasty punchlines

jeremih vibes on 'roll with us'

flopson, Thursday, 12 April 2018 06:50 (one week ago) Permalink

wish the whole thing had more rapping, first 2 tracks kinda stand out for that. really solid songwriting throughout tho

flopson, Thursday, 12 April 2018 06:53 (one week ago) Permalink

fav songs are:

Casual
Roll With Us
Candy
Wine Pon You
All Nighter
Go To Town
