Going Steady: New Singles, Thursday, August 27th, 2020, Reviewed

Deep Reverence (feat. Nipsey Hussle) – Big Sean, Nipsey Hussle – Admire Big Sean? Absolutely. Love him? He’s a big star and he is a great rapper so I’ve never been sure why I wasn’t crazy about him. Here with the late Saint Nipsey, joining him on a beautifully rhymed song that doubles as a tribute and a smart use of the title – B+

Say the Name – clipping. – horrorcore meets rap on an industrial brutal backing track and scary raps – B-

Fear of God (feat. DeJ Loaf) – Conway the Machine, DeJ Loaf – Hit Boy produced, Dej is always working and Conway The Machine is the brother of Westside Gunn and they both created Griselda Records and having a great year, Conway spits the bars with power and violence, Dey’s singing is gorgeous  – B

Birthday – Disclosure, Kehlani, Syd – very pretty Kehlani vocal and a steady shuffling of beats and vibes, the best one we’ve heard off the upcoming album – B+

Solipsism – Fenne Lily – The singer songwriter has a killer hook and a different, pleasantly strident sound filled with piano and organ frills – B+

rue – girl in red – I gave up on Tik Tok because I lost interest in figuring out how it works. Girl In Red is the Tik Tok find whose name is used as code , if you tell another woman you love Girl In Red you are saying you re a lesbian. The actual songs are like this, busy indie singer songwriter stuff – C+

Ain’t It Different (feat. AJ Tracey & Stormzy) – Headie One, AJ Tracey, Stormzy – The follow up to grime drill star Headie One’s great Drake featured “Only You Freestyle”, includes one star and one superstar of the genre and wonderful rapping throughout – B+

Turquoise Walls – Laura Veirs – what a sweet voice she has, on a fine singer songwriter song – B

Tomorrow – Portugal. The Man – yes, the Annie song, and very lovely – B

Hysterical – Sad13 – I once caught Speedy Ortiz from the photographers pit at a Village Voice gig and man has she got a pair of legs. Otherwise, she’s nothing special and neither is this indie rock popper (ps: before you call me a sexist, look at the pictures she uses toto illustrate her “ABOUT” tab on Spotify) – C+

Triptych – Samia – the lesbian sad girl’s debut album drops tomorrow, till then every song has been pretty good, just like this – B

Holes – Teenage Halloween – PUNK ROCK! Loud fast still rules – B+

Ghosts on the Boardwalk – The Bouncing Souls – Back in the 80s I had a part time job at a bouncing soul crushing telemarketing job and was friends with the drummer. That’s when the band were a hard rocking behemoth. I don’t know what this plodding remake of an old track is except a major bummer- C

Nothing – Tim Heidecker – absolutely gorgeous indie folk song featuring Weyes Blood’s Natalie Mering haunting harmony- B+

I’m in the Doorway – Tricky, Oh Land – Not your daddy’s Tricky, a very pleasant and low key tech drums pop brightness with Oh Land leading the way – B

Wasn’t Born to Follow – Yo La Tengo – MY fave Yo La Tengo album is their covers album, not Murdering The Classics but the unspeakably wonderful Fake Book. Come to think of it, Classics wasn’t bad at all, and neither is the Byrds cover – B
