Huge Prince/Floyd influence in this one and it's done so right and respectfully accurate. Even though Annie shares the space with other old soul contemporaries like Angel Olsen and Weyes Blood, she's in her own funk/soul league that's entrancing and intoxicating.

I love how completely juxtaposing this sounds, yet it's so damn enthralling. I'm hypnotized from beginning to end. A stunning debut achievement.

There is an enigmatic energy throughout this album that stops me in my tracks. It's dynamic, kaleidoscopic and gripping. Minimal, yet perplexing. Dark, yet full of life. Every sound is played and styled with care and intent. It sounds very "live" and in the moment which brings another element of rawness and intimacy like you're living in this world that's unravelling before your eyes in real time. Phenomenal!

There's a lot of tension in this album. It’s like a gruesome horror flick that you feel the need to watch again and again to catch every dark detail. Fire Leap is outstanding. The second half of the album is kinda forgettable though.

Very Panda Bear / Caribou vibes with austere organic instrumentation, electronic sequencing and vocal effects. Really cool ambient grooves and soundscapes. The only negative I'd give it is that some songs sound like they're building up to a climax that we never really arrive at—but maybe that's intentional. Also, it gets a bit monotonous by the end of the album. But still great sound design.
