Not bad! I dig the vibes of this short boy. Some ideas are stretched out too long, even for how short it is, and some ideas are even repeated, so perhaps this release would have prospered as a shorter, more stronger and louder release. Denee's voice is surprisingly so distinct and pristine. I pretty much have no complaints on the vocals. Denee sounds good, and Ty is obviously very in the zone with his guitar riffs and breakdowns (and by breakdown, I don't mean metalcore synced rhythmic open ... read more

Wow. What a pleasant surprise. Radiohead are truly legends and masters of their craft. I obviously never bought any form of A Moon Shaped Pool, which would obviously include the Deluxe version.

In this track, we receive straightforward piano chords which are pretty decently lo-fi, especially compared to the vocals which aren't crisp clear themselves (they have that "big room" effect to them). Outside of this, Lana Del Rey doesn't bring anything astounding or new to the table, apart from the fact that she pronounces her words more annoyingly than I'm used to.

Well, someone had to get the ball rolling for 2019, right?

This short release isn't absolute trash, sure it's danceable and accessible, but... we already have a Lil Yachty and PnB Rock. We really didn't need this, Ak.

best: Super Lit, Chug Jug
worst: Durag, Celina
