EDITORS’ NOTES

Toronto singer/producer River Tiber’s debut drips with woozy and weird, late-night R&B. Like an amalgam of all the reference points that came before it—chillwave, L.A.'s beat scene, indie R&B à la How to Dress Well and The Weeknd—these bedroom-recorded slow jams were made for staying there. Tommy Paxton-Beesley’s slinky croon on tracks like “Acid Test" never sounds forced; instead, it's lush and soulful, backed by just enough instrumentation to keep things feeling in-the-moment. It's all balanced, oddly enough, by his off-kilter beats and wobbly synth washes, which leave you swimming in a dream state.
