Charli XCX – Number 1 Angel
Charli XCX’ new mixtape features a number of fairly known female indie artists. The album is as fluffy and shallow as ‘Vroom Vroom‘ was, but there’s development. The songs with features have the personality of the latter: ‘Lipgloss’ wit CupcakKe is hilariously sexual, ‘Drugs’ with Abra is smokey and drum-driven. This is music for a late night party or a pink-themed sleepover. There’s room for improvement, even when her next album is again saccharine sweet ad nauseam.
Best song: Lipgloss (featuring CupcaKke)
