To be honest, I don’t have much else to add that hasn’t already been said by big, bad Pfork. What I can say is that Jai Paul makes me feel like I’m listening to mid-80’s Prince. His songs are always edgy AND sexy.
I sort of played out “Jasmine,” so I’m real stoked to have a new Jai Paul jam to grind through my big headphones and just melt into that dirty bass. Maybe my drunk dancing days aren’t over yet; maybe his songs will give me new life.

New to the Library: FKA Twigs: EP2

https://i2.wp.com/theyoungturks.co.uk/images/uploads/releases/FKA_Twigs_approved.jpgEP2‘s opener “How’s That,” rhythmically, seems to be picking up where EP1 left off. Almost like an epilogue to that moment in time. While echoing the songs of past EP, it draws us down the path into a much more sensual place, very different from the bitterness and anger of EP1.

Papi Pacify” lurks in the dark. The video is dripping in sensuality. I also really love the almost back-looped sounding strings toward the end.

If I were to make a non-sexy bathtime playlist, I think “Water Me” would definitely make the cut. Not because of…you know water…but it’s just very chill and almost cleansing feeling.

On the flip side, if I was making a SEXY playlist…”Ultraviolet”‘s gotta be on there. And really, all of these tracks are sort of like making-out-while-high-AF distilled.

EP: 4/5

Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I enjoyed this movie.

I would really recommend seeing this while it’s in theatres because of the special effects. The plot is pretty average, but the talent of the actors help get you to that emotional investment needed to keep you interested.

It would be a waste to spend time analyzing this film. It’s pretty. It’s fun. It’s the HP world. : D
