Skylar Spence has made a magnificent crossover from chillwave patron saint to full-blown disco-pop overlord. Ryan DeRobertis has already released a slew of singles off his new record Prom King, and in advance of its release on Friday he’s finally streaming the entire thing. My personal favorite is still bubblegum pop track “Fiona Coyne” because it sounds like a real conversation with a roller-rink-crush turned into a song. “Affairs” dips back into mistier pop with an understated groove, and “I Can’t Be Your Superman” puts victimization on blast. “Can’t You See” is another great exercise in disco exuberance, and so is previously unreleased “Ridiculous!,” an instrumental crush-pop banger. This whole album feels like the best and brightest golden moments of summer, so hold onto those memories by streaming it all the way through fall.
Prom King is out 9/18 on Carpark.
