There's a wonderful, thoughtful, engaging review of Joey Walker's new album Supersoft on Tiny Mix Tapes today. We highly recommend you give it a read.
"With Walker’s delicate yet fortifying vocals leading the charge, the singer’s newest endeavor is menacing and utterly intoxicating as it... brings to light the grayer areas of sexuality and power often dismissed or reluctantly articulated by well-known LGBTQ artists."
"devastatingly intimate—as powerful as it is delicate and melancholic"
"Breathy, melodramatic, and at times feeble, Supersoft comes close to a proper musical representation of the type’s ideal. But the album was built with the intent to place caricature and subversion at its core. Walker’s sullen demeanor and outward expression remind us that youth is the site of frustration, loneliness, and confusion, not to be reductively imagined as little more than a sexualized concoction of curiosity, amusement, submission, and wonder."
