STREAM: Autre Ne Veut - Play By Play
Autre Ne Veut has long had a love affair with new age shininess and Prince-indebted R&B that pops. But a love affair sometimes doesn't fully translate into the real deal for a listener. Arthur Ashin's past work often felt more like fascinating outsider art rather than capital-p POP. Influenced, sure, but not ready for an actual club.

It's an early contender for 'jam of the season,' so find someone to hold and be anxious with and don't be ashamed about it. Anxiety comes February 26 via Software / Mexican Summer.
