main pop girl 2019 (out now, self-released)
File this one under: “did not see this one coming.” But my goodness, James Brooks (formerly of Elite Gymnastics) just put out a fucking stunner. Though I’ve liked bits and pieces of his post-Elite-GZ solo work (mostly just this track), “main pop girl 2019” feels like a watershed album for him — fusing breakbeats with evocative samples, cleverly-pitched vocals, and affecting lyrics about Midwestern misery — the project feels unique and utterly modern. Though many tracks that grabbed me on first listen, this gooey, gorgeous, No Rome-assisted daydream is a great place to start and a worthy introduction to a truly exciting LP.
