The Best Tracks of 2017, #10

10. Kelela, “LMK”

As strong as Kelela’s debut album Take Me Apart is, “LMK” is the one track that grabbed my attention the most. The hook is terrific (“All you gotta do is let me know”) but the production is spectacular, following the lead of fka twigs: ominous bass synth, skittering, glitchy percussion, and crystalline stabs that slice through the darkness. Creating something this rich with so few ingredients is no small feat.
