Jack Ladder is extremely talented, so it comes as no surprise that his latest release, Playmates, lives up to the monstrous hype surrounding it. Ladder has already received heavy praise from NPR, Stereogum, and even Buzzfeed, all of which labeled him “someone to definitely keep an eye on.”
Playmates just dropped, brooding with a Bad Seeds vibe by way of a fully synthesized-Arcade Fire. The songs are simply too good to believe.
