FKA twigs - MAGDALENE
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:08:26 AM »


This is a bit bloody good, isn't it? FKA twigs new album, out today. I've only listened once so far but that's all it took to realise this is a bit special. Her voice is really incredible. Some major Kate Bush vibes.

The singles:


Cellophane - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkLjqFpBh84
Sad Day - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnmDMAVdaPc
Home With You - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2Rro6TQgpU

Ah man I love her; especially the work she did with Arca. She has artistic integrity and a voice that at it's best feels like someone pouring a bucket of ice down your spine. so happy she's finally brought a new album out

Halfway through atm and really digging it. Even this song with Future is alright.

Enjoying this a lot. She's quirky like Grimes except isn't trying so very hard with everything she does, is not shite and (as far as I know) doesn't have the planet's biggest cunt as a partner.

This album has had the effect of just repeatedly sending me back to earlier stuff instead.

Cellophane and Sad Day are great but I'd rate Two Weeks and several of the songs from the EPs above both. The pretty heavy Kate Bush influence also makes this one just feel a lot less interesting to me than her previous releases too.

Saw her last night on that honky-tonk extravaganza and thought she was AWFUL. Quite possibly the worst shite I've ever heard.

For me, it's more about the Ptwiggs these days.
