First of all, S.A.F.E. actually stands for Sensitive As Fuck Everyday. This is great advice! Be sensitive sometimes, but maybe not all the time. Not only is it good advice, it's also a fitting title for Atlanta-based Trinidad James’ debut release, which is an appealingly sloppy album that oscillates between bummer moments and hilarious observations. What's really appealing though, is James' voice, which is a hoarse, elastic rasp that is nimble and great at conveying humor as well as it does sadness.
