Porter Robinson – Flicker
The world’s been raving over the release of Porter Robinson’s first three singles to his upcoming LP Worlds. And while by general standards I still think they are good tracks, all three ultimately fall short for me in their own respective ways. But there’s no denying that PR’s newest track, “Flicker”, is one of the best, most original jams of the summer. At first I had it confused with a disco-funk tune a group like Lemaitre might produce (coincidentally they’re featured on another song), but by about the 1:30 mark the track really begins to take its shape as a true Porter Robinson work of art. And on the heels of this amazing new one, I’m even more excited for what’s turning out to be one of the most hyped records of the year.
