Like, if Gwen Stefani had released this song, I think it was surprisingly good. But for Santi to do it, I find it a letdown.

Single's OK but nowhere near as good as "Disparate Youth".

Yes but that's unfair, that's like her best single of all time.

I like it because backing track sounds very inspired by William Onyeabor. What's not to like?

"Disparate Youth" and "The Keepers" are two of the best singles of the last five years imo

Yeah, I'd agree with that. Such a shame that neither of those songs were hits. The second album was really underrated.

It had that wide, instant appeal that great pop songs have. Almost everytime it gets played on one of my bars people ask what song it is.

three months pass...

I just listened to "Banshee" and my first reaction was "huh, this is garbage" ;_;

Loved the first single, not feeling the subsequent two singles.

There seems to be absolutely no hype for this album at all. I didn't even know there had been two other singles.

I had no idea she had a new album coming. I just remember that one summer in the 00's when she was playing in like everyone bar I went to.

The album is now streaming on NPR. I am two songs into it. It's remarkably terrible.

The first two songs make "Banshee" seem tolerable, btw

That's a shame. The cover art is wonderful

Half of this album is really great and half of it is kind of forgettable. Banshee has grown on me a lot since I first heard it a couple of weeks ago. Kind of reminds me of something on Ze Records.

Love that she's brought some of the new wave influences back from her first album on Rendezvous Girl and Who I Thought You Were. Apart from those two songs, the second half is kind of a drag. There's one that sounds like a really bad Siouxsie & The Banshees impression.

Chasing Shadows is so good. Her version of Need Ur Love by Charli XCX.

When I heard Chasing Shadows I thought it was the same sample as hard knock life

iLoveMakonnen collaborations sound so patronizing and are bad
