And After That, We Didn't Talk
GoldLink sure doesn’t make easy work for himself. On And After That, We Didn’t Talk, the rapper reels yarns while spitting circles over chopped-up, off-kilter beats that’ll make your head spin. All the while, he unearths some pretty deep relationship wounds. “Spectrum” is a year-in-the-life tale that’s playful, sentimental, and rapped at hyper speed atop a woozy, house-inflected club track. But for every introspection, there’s a late-night indulgence: “Dance on Me” spins a Lyn Collins breakbeat into a supple jam that just swims in funky, soulful vibes.
