just noticed it’s also part of a new EP, Away Message, which for some reason doesn’t include “Hoodie”

…but aiui, this is EP is just a teaser for the actual album, age/sex/location, which will be released on Sept. 9. well, this is definitely a case of More Better Baby

Although I've played "Hoodie" to death in the last month, I only noticed yesterday that she sings, "spread it like some queso."

mixing it with shea butter no doubt

For an amuse bouche this EP is pretty rich! There's not a bad track afaict, but I was really digging how much "Gummy" bumps. She crushes the Arrows-sampling "Bitter"

Just heard “Hoodie” for the first time this morn, and it’s on repeat now.

She’s doing album release events in DC and NY this week.

album age/sex/location is out now too. 12 tracks, including “Hoodie” ánd “Queen Space”, but not the rest of that amuse bouche EP

This sounded pretty rad this morning! She's sharp as a razor as always, and the production is deeply luxurious. I probably won't listen to "Boy Bye" too many more times—though someone should think about casting her in something, she has acting talent—but that was the only track I was iffy on. I even liked that there was one, brief helium-voiced interlude

oh wow -- Organized Noize produced a track.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 9 September 2022 14:35 (two months ago) link

ah I hadn't noticed that, but now that I know it's "Outside" it makes a ton of sense

Ari Lennox is on Jimmy Fallon show tonight Tuesday

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 20 September 2022 14:16 (two months ago) link

I've been listening to this every day since Sept. 9
