10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On her debut full-length, Empress Of's Lorely Rodriguez flits between the ecstasy of a love affair and the embrace of solitude: "Everything is you," she admits on the dreamy opener, while on the nervous "Need Myself," she makes self-love her priority. In keeping with that dichotomy, her songwriting pits euphoric dance beats ("How Do You Do It," "Water Water") against cryptic melodies ("Kitty Kat") and forbidding sound design ("Threat"). Set to sumptuous, spiky beats that draw liberally from techno and UK garage, it's the most exhilarating kind of therapy.

Groundbreaking

Me. A perfect album title because this girl did this whole thing herself - the lyrics, the vocals, and the phenomenal production. It's her. This is one of the freshest and most original records I have heard in years and anyone reading this who is unsure, buy it now. It is a treasure.
