EDITORS’ NOTES

"OctaHate” brought instant fame to Ryn Weaver—the track went viral and earned props by everyone from Paramore’s Hayley Williams to UK pop sophisticate Jessie Ware. Weaver’s debut full-length delivers on that song’s glittering promise. With help from Charli XCX, Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, and Passion Pit mastermind Michael Angelakos, The Fool is a collection of dynamic, self-assured pop. Detailed production makes "Stay Low” and “Here is Home” pure headphone candy, while highlights like “Pierre” and “Sail On” transition from delicately crafted murmurs to maximalist anthems. Still, Weaver is the most captivating during album’s simplest moments, like the acoustic-guitar-backed elegance of “Traveling Song.”
