“Loops” is the third single from Doldrums’ upcoming new album, The Air-Conditioned Nightmare, the Canadian producer’s first foray into big-indie label life at Sub Pop. Like “Hotfoot” and “My Friend Simjen” before it, “Loops” is constructed around a pulsating, subdued backbone. It’s more about the slide than the bounce, and Airick Woodhead takes a handful […]

It’s been so fun to watch Tink emerge. Ever since her Timbaland co-sign, plenty of people have been hailing her as the next Aaliyah or the next Lauryn Hill, but watching her rap at the beginning of her first-ever interview, I was always more struck by the way she didn’t feel the need to imitate […]
