cool album, had a real fun time going through it this morning
off first listen - "hookers"

too short tho!

I really like the 'sketches of songs' form, this is very cool. Not sure I can make a choice yet, will have to give it a few more listens.

This is brilliant but I'm not sure I can choose a favourite bit - it's kind of all one thing

awful album

she clearly has a really strong visual eye... the music nudges a little close to a wave of music i always feel like i should like but doesn't really move me at all... tyler the creator, dram...there's also an element of theatre/camp that doesn't really work for me... some of the r&b stuff is p good tho

anyway she picked a great gimmick... tho i think you could also view it in a negative light

why does every song end after 45 seconds

flopson, Monday, 18 June 2018 03:38 (one month ago) Permalink

it makes more sense if you watch the youtube video

I wanted to like this, but became frustrated with the way every song ended as soon as I started to become interested. I also found the theatre-kid aspects to many of the videos somewhat off-putting. But she clearly has plenty of ideas and talent so I will check out whatever she does next.

yeah this needs the video to really work

there's a fun unpacking of the use of 'theater kid' in the context of rap to be had

I can't imagine listening to this without watching the video at the same time but the wealth of potential here is captivating

she's opening for Lauryn Hill in Philly with MIA and Busta Rhymes but tickets are $60 so I prob won't go :-/

That sounds like a dream line-up to me!

one month passes...

I just caught up to this and it's pretty fucking amazing, tossing out ideas like pistachio shells

Neat visuals, but I can't really imagine listening to this like an album.
