musical taste

Gregory Alan Isakov This Empty Northern Hemisphere
Aphex Twin Cheetah EP
Cheetah; as in this serves mostly as a demonstrative dabbling with the seldom-seen synth of the same name, not as in this is a speedy+voracious set of tunes that are gonna hunt you down and sink their teeth in. And per ushe, the Aphexer proves himself a gracious enough guru, establishing the particular characteristics of said synth slow and safe and steady while compiling its miscellaneous morsels into 30-second asides for the sake of consummation. But unlike his similarly satiated showcasing of computer controlled acoustic instruments last year, this sound palette reads too much as routine and the bore fruit is pretty much dispensable. Shout
Lsdxoxo Fuck Marry Kill
If you're under the assumption a project called 'Fuck Marry Kill' by an artist named LSDXOXO is an explicit novelty, well, you right. The beats are brash and blatant to the point of bizarro, minced-up vocal loops are gruntin' somethings and poppin' pussy more often than not and persistent to the point of hyped-up hypnosis, a Kanye remix gets tossed in for kicks. Stalwart and forceful as fuck but always bringing on the bubbly+kooky, these are sexually-charged club bangers rendered ridiculous and playful. Opening track embodies it well: rubber bands, water drops, steel-door slams, soothing soul-croon vs. moaning and booties, etc.
Blood Orange Freetown Sound
Lotsa good bleedin' on through here: lush-n-dreamy arrangements that are percussively preeminent, multi-instrumentalist mastermind crooner with loads of soul and sensitivity and smarts to boot, a gaggle of propitious girl-guests. Prominent Prince worship and kicking things off with a fiery feminist recitation never hurts neither -- but I'm not sure the near-permanent placidity is quite conducive to the durational ambition and socially conscious commentary, the latter of which comes through in interludial sampling more than it does the actual tunes. A handful of moments pump up the pep, but on the whole it seems stuck in a shell of subtlety. N
Vince Staples Prima Donna
TV on the Radio Dear Science
Insane Clown Posse Riddle Box
Just when I thought this was a laudably thorough improvement from the first two albums -- better beats and skits through-n-through, barely any overt murderous misogyny, successful foray into rock-rap-remixing, some genuinely funny moments ("fook off!") and genuinely creepy ones too ("12", "Cemetery Girl") -- in comes this rewind-required lil' somethin' somethin': "There she go, she workin' at Dairy Queen / Bitch couldn't be a day over fifteen / So I threw her in the buck like that / I hit it so quick I made her buttcheeks clap / Why wait around till she gets married / Cuz I'm ready as long as her neden's hairy." Shame, the beat is kinda great
