This week's five best songs are all terrible. Don't listen to them. I'm a boring old man!
"The William Onyeabor-style intro melts away into an overcast confluence on Garbus's clown-coloured harmonies and a surprisingly compressed kick, though the distinctive synths and basslines are retained like a stream of sea turtles migrating across a rained out beach."
"...buzzy, Nigel Godrich-style electronics wrap themselves like a diving bell around Dare's bullish ivories."
"...a Thugga/Zuse banger that has [Dun Deal's] signature horns venturing wayyy down on the keyboard and getting pitched and filtered into perplexing new contortions, matching Young Thug's squeal and Zuse's machine-gun patois."
"Pigtailed vocal melodies do a double dutch over gaping squalls of noise and seemingly arbitrary intermissions (including a dog's barking)."
"For the last couple of years, Jesse James Laderoute has been honing his literate pop chops in Blonde Elvis. After some time spent working his sarcastic Scotch-drunk swagger onstage, he’s ready to debut the first taste of the band’s upcoming debut LP. Listen to the premiere of 'Fit For Her'."
