If 2016’s beloved The Yunahon Mixtape found oso oso mastermind Jade Lilitri leaning more into the pessimistic side of his brain, their new album basking in the glow (out August 16; read more here) is an experiment in its glass-half-full opposite. Here, he acknowledges that there are certainly more bad days than good, but maybe for once he could actually embrace the latter instead of just anticipating its inevitable departure.
And sonically-speaking, basking in the glow delivers. Big time. Lilitri writes songs bigger than himself at times, with “dig (II)” leading us into the light with rainy-day riffing and hushed, staccato vocal delivery on the verse before its tense, charged chorus: “There’s this hole in my soul / So how far do you wanna go?” Lilitri asks, his voice ethereally aware that this won’t last. It’s an ambitious, complex scheme, and one that captures the spirit of the record: clutching tight to the unbridled glee of the short, sunny, major-key moments before they dissolve.
