Lol thanks brad

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

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 15:54 (one year ago) link

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

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:01 (one year ago) link

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

oh shit the album is *out*, brb

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:05 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:18 (one year ago) link

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

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:19 (one year ago) link

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

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:30 (one year ago) link

i am really loving this record huh

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:31 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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

rob, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:33 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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)

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:46 (one year ago) link

... 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)

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 17:47 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

Well this is a lot of fun

Tim F, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 21:12 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

the first 3 songs are really strong tho

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 3 April 2018 21:35 (one year ago) link

Whole album is strong!

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

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 year ago) link

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 year ago) link

fav songs are:

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

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Friday, 13 April 2018 20:12 (one year ago) link

InfoWarriors (Spottie), Tuesday, 14 August 2018 03:31 (one year ago) link

"mooo" is not parody but there's a mix of ridiculousness and songcraft as well as a toying w/ rap's slang and conventions in a way that signals a deep immersion and appreciation that reminds me a lot of why i loved "lemme smang it" so much

I am really going to have to resist the temptation to make comments along the lines of "but how about the cultural positioning?" in other threads.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 7 November 2019 18:56 (one week ago) link

as a person who used to use the phrase "cultural positioning" a lot (to describe affective critical stances OR PROBABLY MORE ACCURATELY what I personally would describe as affective critical stances) I still don't know what being good or bad at it would entail

this could use a song or two like "cyber sex" and "more bite" in the back half... it starts to drag a bit. "better than me" is really dope tho. the way she goes from singing to rapping in some of these songs is amazing. "so sick" is like kyline minogue ft nicki minaj done by one person

I'm joking, mostly. Tho I don't get "pop" in the context of this artist; every pop and R&B artist around seems better to me. If she's meant to be more of a rapper, then maybe I'm making a category error.
