Few bands at this age are as ambitious as the Pumpkins in 2020. However that doesn’t mean anything here is really all that great

Lightest of 7s upon first impressions. However I really admire the sound Miley was going for on this album and I think it REALLY pulls through on a few songs. A couple of huge duds here but overall very enjoyable.

review:
I never expected myself to be excited for a Miley Cyrus album. She’s always been an artist that has read to me as having a lot of potential. Her voice is genuinely incredible and it seems she has a taste for good music. However her attempts at different styles have ... read more

WOW. This was great. Especially loving the more upbeat tracks here, super visceral but calming at the same time. Also they weren’t kidding about the “dots and loops” title

Liked it! some nice New Order vibes. Just wish the vocals were a little more present and the record had more stylistic variation

Hey! It’s Stankysauce under my new alias Alkaline Pink with my new debut Halloween mixtape on my new label Insomnia Café! This new mixtape is by FAR my best material to date and a total change of pace from my last project Analog Autopsy. I am done with that synthwave type stuff to embrace more loud distorted sounds, as I am going industrial this time around. I tried to make it sound as dark and nasty as possible to celebrate the spooky month!
Anyways, I hope you guys like it!

Hello! I recently came up with the idea to make a small blog (site) like Pitchfork and etc for several selected people from AOTY (and not only) to share their reviews and opinions. Do you support this idea and are you interested in it?

Cool! My discord is Stankysauce#4788, when you add me I'll invite you to the server! I don't think you can send straight server invites through here

What do you think is the most underrated album of all time? This is for a list.

It's basically just a discord server with a bunch of other producers from this site haha. And the label isn't like an actual label, we just call it that. I guess it's more of a brand

Well then would you like to join a label/discord server I'm in? You seem like a really cool guy! Plus we're trying to expand it. People talk on there every day and we just kinda have conversations and occasionally even make music together. Plus it's free promotion. So if you want we can totally add you! AZIZ is the leader by the way.

Do you still make electronic music by the way? I see you used to on Soundcloud
