Twin Shadow - Confess
While it’s easy to appreciate Confess for taking chillwave—if that’s a term we can still say with a straight face in 2012—and shattering it into harder-edged dance music, songs still fall victim to contrived conventions, but now of multiple genres. Over its 40-minute run time, proprietor George Lewis Jr. essentially takes one of two routes: deadpan aggression or unnuanced passion. Coupled with a tirade of synths, cuts like “Five Seconds" sound like they belong soundtracking a scene from Top Gun. It's cheesey, is what we're saying.
