Reviews for 'Expectant' debut album
'Golden Flavored Champagne Sweatshirt’s new record, like so many great boundary-breaking sonic works, says a great deal with a careful fusion of sounds. '
'Expectant asks listeners to enter into a sound world without direction or dimension. These sounds bleed across each others’ borders, tempering rises, negating expectations and reconstructing each moment’s singular body. Like this music, the feeling of lying in wait without tangible release or dismissal can often feel uncomfortable in its sense of perpetual unknowing.'
'It’s as though she constructs these hostile environments, reflective of the outside world and her place in it, and then she completely disarms them with the same tools used to build them. '
'This isn't music you can listen to as background or something you're going to hear piped in to some coffee shop. This is music you have to pay attention to. '
