The ranch dressing of music blogs by Brady Gerber.

Margaux on Massif Records.

Rating: 3 out of 4.

What a dreamy dream of a tune. Or maybe it’s a dreamy tune of a dream. Margaux sounds like someone I’ve been listening to my whole life, soundtracking those private intimate moments in which we realize how lucky we are to be alive and be around people who hurt and love us for reasons we can’t or won’t understand. How timeless. How lovely that “DNA” actually builds into an interesting bridge and breakdown. Someone email needledrop [at] hulu [dot] org and demand they put “DNA” in an upcoming prestige miniseries starring the janitor from Euphoria. I’ve never seen Euphoria and don’t know if the janitor gets a subplot. Ain’t art grand.
