MJ FLAWS- With Confidence "Without Me" (Paquerette) Cover
When you listen to the tracks, you’ll realize that what MJ is doing is actually just as close to some of the classic Alt-weirdness & humbly melodic, lo-fi beginnings of bands like Modest Mouse or Pavement as it does with anything related to Rap or Hip-Hop. I’d reckon that’s probably not a bad thing at all when it comes to what MJ FLAWS was going for in creating this record and switching up his direction in sound.

MJ Flaws strips things down to their raw, gritty essentials on the lo-fi hip-hop of “Army of the Brokenhearted Boys & Girls”. The way the album unfurls makes it feel akin to a symphony, with each song yet another suite. Lyrics tie the whole of the album together, exploring a deeply felt sadness. His flow has the right edge to it as it adds to the overall atmosphere of despair. Nods to trip-hop, emo, and dream pop are anchored by a distinct, low-slung trap beat. Everything ties its time for not a moment feels wasted...
