Sky Ferreira - Night Time, My Time

Everything really was embarrassing for Sky Ferreira at one point — five years of false starts, yeesh — but Night Time, My Time is a record she can be proud of for the rest of her life. There’s a fully realized persona at play, from the retro-futuristic pop-rock wonderland she built with Ariel Rechtshaid to the breathy narration about coping with personal and professional tumult and coming out on top. Let us count the treasures on this album: Consider the big-haired, stonewashed John Hughes excess of “24 Hours” and “You’re Not The One,” the digitized bass clatter of “Omanko” and “Heavy Metal Heart,” the tuneful bloodletting of “I Blame Myself” and “Nobody Asked Me (If I Was OK)” — and there’s a half-dozen more where those came from. (“Boys,” people!) This is the sound of a would-be pop star pulling herself out of a tailspin and laughing all the way to the arena. –Chris [LISTEN]
