FKA Twigs – bloops & bleeps.

FKA TWIGS.

What can I say about this chick that most people DON’T know? I mean, dating Robert Pattinson has this lady under the microscope, which is weird. I don’t like mainstream people, mainstream crap. No. All the no.

So I struggle with these social things when it comes to FKA Twigs. I do.

Performance-wise and musically… man, she is one hell of an entertainer, and whoever her creative team is, there’s a touch o’ genius there. I admit it.

BUT THE BLOOPS N BLEEPS. 

Her squeals and chirps and struggles to falsetto the fxck out of some of the notes she tries to hit MURDER. ME. 

So with this new EP out… yes, I was stoked because of her uniqueness. (And she is NOT R&B, do NOT let this bitch tell you otherwise, mmk?!) But I was apprehensive because I don’t need her summoning all the dogs in my neighborhood to my home whilst listening to her…

Let’s explore what happened!

figure 8 – All o’ dis. Do you hear that bass, motherfxckers?! I like that she keeps her (squeaky) vocals somewhat in check, and even though I hate voice mods for true vocalists, since boo thang isn’t using her range, that voice mod at 1:37-ish just SLAAAAYYYYYSSSSSSSSSSS. Creativing all up in yo’ ears.

i’m your doll – Dis right hurr is another reason why I just love FKA Twigs so much that I can overlook some of these glaring red flags. Bitch OWNS her sexuality. She’s a little kinky, she’s a little crass… but she is undeniably sexy.

in time – First thing I noticed was that this jam sounds STRIKINGLY similar to Selah Sue’s “Time” (peep that here), but FKA Twigs ELEVATES the shit out of it. I ain’t even mad. I can hear this bumping ERRWHERE within the next coupla months. MARK. MY. WORDS.

glass & patron – I’m not harping on transitions here, since this is only an EP. That riff that you hear in the background is a straight up rip from Crystal Castle’s “Crimewave” — short thought on that: borrow, improve, and make it your own. She has perfected this art. I love how this track builds from mellow, pregaming, to bumpin’ bumpin’ for some high energy dancing. “Now hold that purse for me.” Bitch. I have to wonder how she and RPatz (I said it) get it on based on listening to this. I imagine some CRAY cray hi-jinx. Solid track.

mothercreep – Low, down, dirteh BAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I don’t even have much to say about this. Prime mothercreepin’ track, ya dig?

FINAL THOUGHTS: DOPE ASS EP. Yes. Did y’all notice that every track is listed in lowercase? That isn’t user error, bitch’s design team DID that. I need to some more research on her team, but whatever they’re doing is working for her. She’s gonna blow up. Believe it. ♦♦♦♦½/5.
