Thread of weirdo glitch pop wizard JEAN DAWSON

This guy runs in so many directions at once that attempts at categorisation feel weak, but I guess the sound exists somewhere in the gaps between Juice WRLD, Sweet Trip, and Blink 182. There's a lot else in there though. 'Pixel Bath' is one of the most deliriously fun albums this year, stretching a slightly emo rap aesthetic to weird maximalist extremes.

Pretty cool! Instantly wanted to replay that tune after hearing if for the first time just now, a real earworm. Truly a Todd Rundgren of our times.

Found two nice interviews:

Earworm is 100% accurate. Segments of this album are on repeat in my brain constantly. The runs of tracks 1-5 and 8-12 are gold.
