i'm sure most of the WFLM readership probably picked this up in April when the hype was reaching ridiculous proportions, but with the follow-up's delay it remains, irregardless, the undisputed afterparty record of the summer. Toronto r&b replete with 808 drum samples, silky synths, skittering snares, and 90s vocal stylings; Sontag naive camp, so earnest that every listen indebts it to you a little bit more, a Jodeci-like album that makes you want to curl up with a girl (put in work!) and spend a sweaty night macking on a grimy, sandy couch. tracks 2, 3 (esp. after the beat swap), 6, and 7 are favourites, but The Morning (track 4) has been a go-to late night mixtape cut for the past couple of months and the perfect soundtrack for wrapping up the last few sunsplashed nights of August. bonfire that shit, you know you want to.
my niggas stay tight, got my back like Pippen
