So interesting in what places they push the Band. This use of saxophone is long due. Gives me kind of a Blackstar mood lol

this norah jones song is just like bowie, except it's lounge jazz and with female vocals and very tame and doesn't use space very well and is very affable and safe, but only that, otherwise, it's totally just like bowie..

Your main character meets a group of people, you want the audience to quickly understand that they are vain, snobbish and inconsequent, you have them listen to this. Except that it's 2018. You are humble by being vain and arrogant by being humble. So this laughable crap is good.

Mediocre song. Cool beat but absolutely no variation or progression. Vocals are also pretty good but don't mesh with the style of the track at all. I don't get it. NIN hasn't done anything for me in years though.

Song is a banger and certainly cool but I'm hoping the rest of Bad Witch is darker, heavier, and more progressive.

If NIN is turning into an art rock band, I'm into it dude, although there's a girl friend it won't be happy about the change.

Very Gothic and very 80's. I much prefer these vocals to many of his recent work. Very exciting song. I am intrigued to hear more music like this from Trent. More crooning.

This isn't, in any way, mediocre. His last 3 albums were, though. I don't understand the people who liked those records and want more of that sound.

I would love to hear a full length (45-60 minutes) album full of Not The Actual Events style songs. I don't think Trent & Atticus will achieve that with Bad Witch but I'm certainly still excited for it.

Not the Actual Events, to me, had one interesting song (maybe two) the other two songs, which I cannot even recall the names of, were just like Hesitation Marks and With Teeth material.

I'm also getting major TKOL vibes from this.
This is a good thing for me because i actually like TKOL quite a bit more than some of their other stuff (I'm looking at you Pablo Honey & The Bends)

Whoa he's doing Bowie but it almost sounds more natural than Blackstar...

Yup, I love this.

Then again, the only NIN album I wasn't at least a little impressed with was Ghosts, so I'm easy to please haha.

Even though it's only 30 minutes, I bet it'll be 30 INSANE, highest quality minutes.
