    That NIN song is a bit strange, had never heard NIN and after this one I think I won't look to older stuff. I already have enough albums to buy until the end of the year anyway.

    Hey! wow she's amazing, I love this EP. all the songs are really good but especially Bloodstream is fucking fantastic, ahh that bridge with the vocoder is sooo good :O

    If you like you can check Luna Shadows, she has a similar voice/sound but it's a little bit more chill/moody :)

    "Bloodstream" is easily my favourite too, and I like how it helps to make the EP varied.

    Astrid also released piano/acoustic versions of the songs but I truly find the production to be vital, quite simply.

    EDIT: updating ...

    TIER 1

    TIER 2
    • Halsey: "hopeless fountain kingdom"
    PENDING
    • Lana Del Rey: "Lust For Life"
    • Nine Inch Nails: "Add Violence" EP
    • Wolf Alice: "Visions Of A Life"

    1. The Smith Street Band - More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me


    This album, and this band, speak to me like nothing has since LP back when I was 12 or 13. It's insane to find an artist you can connect with like this at 25, I always think those amazing discoveries must be behind me by now.
