The Best Tracks of 2015, #5


5. fka twigs, “Glass & Patron”

Coming right on the heels of last year’s LP1, which was my 2014 Album of the Year, fka twigs wasted no time watching away all doubts as to whether she could follow it up successfully. At only 18 minutes, the M3LL155X EP shows extraordinary growth already, and is highlighted by the stunning “Glass and Patron”. For an artist who puts her sexuality right up front, this is arguably her steamiest song to date, which fantasizes about doing MDMA and tequila with her lover. As incredible as the song is, seeing it performed live was jaw-dropping, highlighted by a vogueing performance that stopped me dead in my tracks. I continue to be in awe of this woman.
