This Week in Posivibes: Drugdealer


Michael Collins’s latest project has an enviable list of collaborators, including Weyes Blood, Ariel PinkMild High Club, Sheer Agony, and members of Mac DeMarco’s band. While some reviews seem preoccupied with the tongue-in-cheek names Collins gives to each of his projects, it seems to us that the more important thing to notice is that these songs are pleasingly jammy, with modulating trippy pacing at times and exactly the kind of throwback pop sound we’d expect from its collaborators.

Drugdealer’s The End of Comedy came out September 9 on Weird World, and two music videos have been released—one for “Suddenly,” the track featuring Weyes Blood, and the newest for “Easy to Forget” featuring Ariel Pink. Watch both after the jump.
