If Ryan’s writeup of the Indicud tracklist the other day didn’t send you scurrying in the other direction, go ahead and click play for “Girls.” The warm, lovingly layered synths, as well as the chorus, are solid, but then his slightly off key warbling and an uninspired Too Short verse wash out those highlights, leaving me in giggles.
Flashes of the Cudi from Man On the Moon are there, but the overwhelming thought is ‘Who is encouraging this song?’ Surely, no girls. Will this song, with its highs falling as far as its lows, be a microcosm for the entire Indicud? We’ll find out on April 23rd.
