ricky eat acid’s three love songs withstood the entirety of 2014 and emerged as our favorite album of the year, but sam ray’s latest project under his electronic moniker has little in common with its full-length predecessor.  instead, mixtape, which began streaming yesterday via vice, feels like a hybrid between love songs and last summer’s sun over hills ep, with the latter providing the stronger influence.  ray stated that mixtape is meant to be digested while smoking weed, though a sober listen doesn’t seem to be any less rewarding; the compact nocturnes juxtaposed by harsh, rapid electronic flurries are jarring in any state of mind.  listen below.
