The Beyoncé producer BOOTS, aka Jordy Asher, has been releasing a bunch of promising solo material lately, and today he leaked a couple more examples of his dark-hued, futuristic R&B. “My Heart Is A Stone Today (Unharmed)” is the most upbeat, poppy single he’s unveiled so far, but it’s still far from a ray of sunshine, all minor chords and creeping vibes until it morphs into an acoustic ballad that betrays his indie rock past. “Sheep/Lookin’ Muthafucka (Lude II)” starts out as a sparse vocal showcase marked by digital flourishes before turning up and expanding into some questionable rapping over discordant clatter. Download both songs below.
In other BOOTS news, he and Childish Gambino are obsessed with Tuesdays.
