top 10 albums of the year: #5


FKA twigs - LP1

I remember how eye-catching the cover (that teal background! that zoned-out maquillaged face!) of FKA twigs' debut was when I first saw posters of it popping up around the city. Like its package design, the music on the record is a bold, immaculate artistry that's difficult to ignore. FKA twigs' high, genteel birdsong voice sweeps through dreamy trip hop and makes you forget where you are.

 “My hope for this record is that people will be able to identify my sound as a producer and understand how much of this I do myself. I’m being fearless and finding a strength in myself to be more confident, to make bolder moves. It’s a tough industry. People always belittle what you’re doing, your creativity. I’m not listening to the sly putdowns. 
I’m finding the strength and confidence within myself to ignore those voices, and do what I’m doing regardless.” -FKA twigs
