  1. Oh man.. that list deserves some sort of award – it’s flawless. I mean, you even got Kelela, Jenny Hval and Holly Herndon in there too; all of them criminally underrated imho.

      1. Thank you, James! And thank you for the recommendation. 🙂 I already have the album somewhere in my music library, but I haven’t had the time to listen to it yet.
        And it wasn’t until this year that I discovered Jenny Hval – what a revelation! She’s amazing.
