🎵Now Listening: Being Funny in a Foreign Language

First Impression: The 1975 ditch their maximalist tendencies and makes their first album that feels tossed off—in a really good way. No overthinking. Just a band playing to their strengths.

It may not be their best record (time will tell), but as of today it is their most consistent by a mile.

Also, Jack Antonoff is quietly making the case for himself as one of the all-time great pop record producers.
