Well, here’s one that I can’t ever put on a mixtape for a woman. Unless it’s the only one worth putting on the mixtape. Listen and you’ll understand.
But it’s not just the sexuality that has me into (like enjoying, not penetrating) this spiritual homage to NIN’s “Closer,” it’s the vulnerable belting of Vall~ey and the slow build of the vocals over the trudging, thrusting steamworks beat. It was the start of summer that I discovered “Waves,” and months earlier that I found “Coffee;” wonder which next song from this album I’ll first hear around the holidays and immediately fall in love with?
