MISTRMILK x BANKS: The Altar
Hey, everyone! I hope you are having an amazing Friday. Especially since I finally was able to sit down from my busy schedule and take a listen to this incredible new album that has been bestowed upon by none other than Banks. I have been a fan of Banks for a very long time, traveling to multiple cities to watch and meet her. But nothing could have prepared me for what I was going to hear when I first played her new album “The Altar”.
Fu** with myself had been a single that she released a few months ago and I was absolutely hooked I'm sure everyone around me was tired of listening to it on repeat but I hungered for more. Your mouth could salivate as she says in one her songs over the impeccable violins and transition from “weaker girl” to “mother earth” a rhythmic cry for a bittersweet love and tragedy. Every detail that goes into the production of the disc is shuttering the album succeeds with cerebral lyrics and dense sonic construction. An unskippable album as some of my friend’s back home love to say! In an industry so consumed with money and tabloids, it’s refreshing to see someone swimming upstream and truly showing you the power of music.
IIf you can’t relate to at least one of these songs than you might be dead, so I would definitely check your pulse right now… No, I’m serious… Check it! This airy Pop R&B masterpiece is a force to be reckoned with. Hopefully, this launches her into outer space! Thanks Banks 💕
