It often feels that the influx of guest artists are only there to fill in the gap left behind by Amber Coffman and friends. Would have preferred another album in the style of last year's self-titled record to this.

Hot take: the supposed "bubblegum pop" aspect of her music constantly cited by critics is just melodicism but, like, written by a pretty blonde lady.

Favorite Tracks: Prime, Transformer, The Crippled Jazzer, Steely, The Package is Wrapped, Roads? Where We're Going We Don't Need Roads, The Devil's In the Details

When she first posted that prospective tracklist it looked like such a disaster but honestly Lorelei -> Icy Pisces -> TREASURE ISLAND -> Along the Coast is gonna be such a strong run of tracks.

Pretty strong debut outing from Toronto's MorMor. The clean lead guitar lines of "Waiting on the Warmth" and "Heaven's Only Wishful" do sound surprisingly fresh in 2018. His vocals aren't the most distinguishable, but he hits many expressive moments, such as the opening incantation of "Lost" or closing measures of "Heaven's Only Wishful." His aesthetic doesn't break much new ground either, but he does have a few tricks up his sleeve, such as the surprise ... read more

What happened?? I was excited for this song after watching the live preview but the production on this is so half baked? Why do her verses sound like they were sung through a laptop mic? Why is the instrumental so flat?

This was probably recorded in a multi-million dollar studio but sounds like it was made with Garageband.

starting to think all the people saying brockhampton wouldn't have needed to kick out ameer if they hadn't marketed themselves as a "boy band" might have a point.

UPDATE 7/18/18: Coming out of the closet as someone who actually likes the sample on "Cops Shot the Kid"

I really appreciate her shifting the focus more inward after the dull celebrity commentary and white feminist cringe of Sheezus. Like that record, though, what really kills this album is an overload of super generic pop tracks. If this had been an EP with just tracks 1, 2, 7, 8, 10 and maybe 11 I'd probably score it in the 80-90 range.

"Trigger Bang" is such an honest, well-written song about not wanting to be anywhere near a space or person that may cause you to relapse. It's the ... read more

I mean, props to her for never making the same record twice and proving a decent amount of versatility across four records, but this is easily her least interesting and most derivative incarnation yet. Her first two records really captivated me during my freshman year of college, and even I Never Learn had its share of high points (namely the singles), but this record just sounds like Li impersonating Halsey impersonating Lorde. Hyper-rhythmic vocal lines you've already heard from all your ... read more

Kinda like the 2018 version of t.A.T.u. - the fact that she's gay irl doesn't change that it's blatant male gaze-worthy hypersexualization of lipstick lesbianhood (see: her music video thumbnails).

UPDATE 6/11/18: The vocals at 2:36 are the most important thing to happen during Pride month

UPDATE 6/17/18: Gotta say one more nice thing about those vocals. I think when Anna Calvi and St. Vincent and even like Torres or Lianne La Havas were having their come-ups there was a lot of to-do (wanted or not) about "omg lady guitarists!!!!" Gotta hand it to Anna for really taking a risk with the singing at that section when she could've so ... read more

On Space Vacation's review of Neko Case - Hell-On
"From Her Website: "When Case returned to the US and walked through the ruins of her home, the fire that had blazed after these songs were written became part of the record. For the cover, she made a warrior's helmet out of cigarettes. Interior and exterior shots of her incinerated house appear on the gatefold and booklet. And a tiny pop-open charred Brothers-Grimm cottage serves as the set for the video of 'Bad Luck.'""

Also we all know the lines “let me hit it raw like fuck the outcome/none of us would be here without cum” wouldn’t be out of place on Ephorize."
