Comment: just having abandoned all the pretenses to reach objectivity I think of it as one of the best issues in 2016. More profoundly, it is a fabulous chain made up by a catchy song-writing and a vivid rhythmic chugging and tickling contemporary sonic possibilities, all of which are adeptly accomplished. It emits audible and emotional depth and splendour mixed up tightly and exuberantly. In bold, post-punk meets with psychedelic music via Ariel Pink-esque and chillwave impacts and David Lynch-ian touch. I guess The Cure might have sounded in that way if they started today. However, what we have to admit Spooky Cigarette is not a new The Cure. I like the singer's incessant change into different roles from a careless dandy to a more brooding, zombie-alike undercurrents imbued with a velvety timbre and suggestive intonation. Frequently these are epic, hymn drenched notches. However, it is hard to convey the magic and bewildering touch of this 4 track issue. One of the most staggering (pop) issues I have heard in 2016 so far. It is great pleasure to live in the 10s and enjoying the sonorous fare of it. It is much better than the mostly horrific 90s (stupid eurobeat and spineless Britpop acts). As loud as you can. At least after listening to it you can do it for sure. The issue is a part of the discography of Bleeding Gold.
