musical taste

Chart.
Julianna Barwick Will
Her airy+layered+indecipherable Enya-esque vox are steadily breathtaking; and whether paired with soaring synth drones or ambiance with pinches-o-piano and subtle strings, it makes for a captivatingly churchy tranquilizer -- or straight-up divinity deliverer at its best ("Nebula", "Same", "Someway"). That's not to say the uniform wafting and sense of inactivity don't become a bit snoozy; that they predictably do. But thankfully it doesn't get as vast or inflated as, say, comparable contemporary Gabi; or for better or worse, as weird: instead of Argento vibez for the finale, we just get drums and a lil electro-takeover.

Comes off as somewhat surplus when taking into account their more-sprawling/parentheses-packed release from three months prior, especially being plainly plainer and really no less obnox persona-wise.

Dawn Richard Infrared EP
A steamy electro-r&b short-play that's all-too-apropos for summer and quick-fix-bliss -- 4 simmering tracks in just over 14 minutes, each an unobtrusive banger with a killer hook and bewitching atmosphere; thick with the smaze of spliffs and indecisive pining with a dash-o-defiance for good measure. Ender refreshes with plashes and purification, i.e. a bid for baptizement and "water coming down like ooo ooo".

  • qwe3 you really manage to capture the essence of albums in them mate, so if you could translate that to reviews i'm sure you'd be one of the better reviewers on the site. which i'm told is a big deal.
