WHAT WE'RE SPINNING
If I’m being honest, I stan this EP. The use of atmospheric sound layering gets me all tingly. Not to mention, he features Clairo, Honne, Ruel and Kamille (specific favorites of mine). Would recommend for long drives and Backwoods adventures *wink face emoji*
Dancing On The People - Sofi Tukker
This is a German-American duo, which I find ironic since a significant portion of their songs are in Spanish (though these lines lack any poetic structure), and this album’s branding definitely pulls from Latin culture. Despite this, the musical lines are dope, and some songs actually make me do a stank face (the ultimate sign of bass quality).
Described as “neo-rap,” 22 year old producer-rapper Angelo Mota pioneers a sound that combines 808’s, traditional samples, and lyrical flow in a powerful and “post-ironic” message. He tackles the issues of anxiety, depression, sex and lean through poetic lyrics and sick beats. Honestly, this album just slaps.
Flaws - A Weight Off My Shoulders
Off of one of my favorite labels (Bitbird), Flaws also utilizes a stunning combination of ambient guitar/synth harmonies, lofi beats, and soft, melodic vocals. If you’re an introvert, you’re welcome.
This album (their first since 2011) is an ode to lo-fi pop-grunge, and I find myself loving the repetitious, fuzzy wall-of-sound more with every song. Their lyrics have remained dark and haunted, which feeds my soul in a fun, voyeuristic way.
