Singles With Lachlan: Migos, King Gizz & More

I haven’t reviewed any singles since last year! #LOL

SINGLE OF THE WEEK

MIGOS : T-Shirt

A woozy, relatively subdued taste from Migos’s upcoming Culture, T-Shirt marries impossible cool with eerie detachment, refining the ATL trio’s sprawling influence of recent years, continuing with purpose on the path of their own carving. The Migos are playing chess while other acts have gone all in on checkers.

 

KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD : Nuclear Fusion

Reeling in the barrelling majesty of Nonagon Infinity, the Gizz keep it chill on Nuclear Fusion, splitting the atom with meticulous tactic rather than dropping an A-bomb. Breezy, and a bit beautiful.

 

NINE INCH NAILS : Burning Bright (Field On Fire)

A meandering experiment that doesn’t really do much in its swirl of white noise, but I guess we’re listening in the context of setting up substantial happenings in the NIN world in 2017. Not memorable, but not entirely worthless.

 

THE XX : Say Something Loving

A touch overwrought, even by The xx’s standards. Self-parody without the fun. Let loose, The xx! Wear some funny hats! Or something!
