YALLA STOCKINGS: Young Cut: CS

And just like that, I’m obsessed. Gorgeous layers of beats and synths and voice. Alternating between sparse and lush. Lyrics like drops of blood, swirling with life. This line has me tangled up: “Taking my time wasting time, looking at pictures that look nothing like me, hoping to find something of myself, but the things I’m not is all I can see.” Maybe it’s because I’m getting a rhinoplasty in a couple days and I’m putting all sorts of things into those words, but they have a grip on me, but I’m going to dance with them. And this tape is so danceable. Not bombastic dance club danceable, but like quiet alone in my living room, just moving and crying danceable, and I love it so much. –Emma Alice Johnson (Let’s Pretend)
