I haven’t decided if I like this album yet. Some parts are really great, and some just remind of extremely dire late-’90s goth synthpop that I can’t believe is getting re-evaluated by anyone. No, man. Leave that shit buried in the landfill of Cleopatra Records and move on. Still, it has some really nice moments and certainly deserves more than the cursory listen I’ve given it. Stream the whole thing here. Your own results may vary, depending on level of eyeliner application.
We need to talk, world. I was all ready to be sooooo over fashion this year thanks to a fairly uninspiring selection of visuals over the past four or five months. But you were all ‘Fuck no dude, check this shit out’ and BAM. Jeremy Scott doing Bartman sweaters and Fifth Element couture. Ashish going acid. Daniel Palillo somehow hitting that perfect combo of future-goth army and Walmart Halloween costume. Kokon Tozai in general. It’s been like the IRL personification of all my tumblr desires. It’s been good, and I appreciate it.
