Arms and Sleepers Swim Team
This is typically great and all, and there's a part of me that can't wait to get hungover and just chill at the beach with this blasting out of the car, but when did AAS stop being a unique and truly interesting group and devolve into aping Dilla beats and throwing twinkly synths over the top?

Arca Xen
Is anyone really surprised that Arca dropped the ball on this one?

Obviously I'm in the minority looking at most of the other ratings here, but barring &&&&& (I think that's all the ampersands) given its mixtape status, Arca was never going to be able to pull off the kind of statement that an LP needs to have to ensure survival. Hype derailed - I count 2 great songs, and one good one. The rest are nothing more than explorations in the kind of slo-mo drughype that he already perfected, and then bastardized.

You see this? This is my disappointed face
