New Miguel, premiered today at Rolling Stone as part of Adult Swim’s Singles series. Like many a great Miguel song, “Can’t Sleep Together” features a chorus that gets a little too close to cheesy for comfort—Can’t sleep/ Can’t sleep/ Let’s can’t sleep together, urgh—but a fantastic sound that easily overpowers that type of quibbles. The synth-and-choppy-guitar production style reminds me of “Arch & Point,” which is a great song to come back to after a few months away. For some context, and maybe some more motivation to revisit Kaleidoscope Dream, read the singer’s 2012 FADER cover story.
