Hi all, it's Claw and I've come to transport you back to the recent past. 2019 was a pretty cool year, musically-speaking, and especially huge for banner releases by women in the art pop genre. We'll be breaking down 4 of the most acclaimed (in addition Tyler, the Creator's followup to his critical glow-up Flower Boy) to see what's good. :soda::gaycat3:

Yo it's been a while since I did a rate since that culture kinda slowly died off around here. I would be lying to myself if I said I recently played any of these albums but i'll try my best to get it done~
