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 (yesterday) 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
