Singles 2/8

Meaty and bouncy, with a worthwhile intellectual’s distillation of a crisis in clear English, “Harmony Hall” augurs well for Vampire Weekend’s first album in six years (here’s how long it’s been: Spotify didnt yet count toward album “consumption”). But it’s barely better than Luna and Mero’s efforts, and Cardi B’s credited co-writer came up with decent rapping on his own. 

I am condemned to never understand Chris Stapleton.
