@@@ Daniel Caesar: Get You (N/A, 2017) Songs of the summer motherfuckers! Straight off the Apple Music publicist purchased Songs of Summer playlist. For example this track is a sexy, horizontal bop kinda song, and the last time I checked people are fornicating during all seasons. The production here is smooth and so i Caesar’s voice. Very smooth, like after a Brazilian wax smooth. Personally I prefer Prince’s booty anthems as the rock guitar contrasts with other smooth elements.
@@@ Loote: High Without Your Love (N/A, 2017) More songs of the summer. This is some breathy finger snapping cinnamon bun porn pop. She can’t get high without your love! You know the greatest threat to America is stupid and this is highly polished cliche stupid. I understand people want to dance but you can do better than this. Check out her stage name — Loote. A little Lil’ Yachty and a whole lot of money money money. Makes Taylor Swift think she’s actually an artist. She needs it so bad, oy what a lyric. A lyric video, God I’m in heaven.
@@@ Wormwitch: Strike Mortal Soil (Profound Lore, 2017) I couldn’t take any more of the Songs of Summer playlist, it’s complete bullshit. I thought I would cleanse my ears with a little metal. After a dramatical opener they get into some midtempo skull crushing with a thick guitar sounds, an angry ‘singer’ and a hard rock drum sound. They switch up into a slightly faster thrash tempo before return to the boot stomp that opened the track. The third tune Weregild dispenses with all niceties and gets straight into full tilt smashface although there is some unique operatic background vocalizations that remind me of Wagner. These guys are all right. They’re a bit obsessed with death but you know everybody has issues.
