New Music: The Weeknd

On paper, I should love everything about The Weeknd, but there is something about Abel Tesfaye’s abundantly grimy, sexualised (and sadly misogynistic) world, sneakly disguised by his soft, crooning vocals which can make much of last years Kiss Land hard to swallow. His new track, Often, is much the same. I suppose it comes with the territory thanks to the warping of chauvinistic R&B culture, but there is only so much ‘make that pussy rain’ you can take before you have to shut it off.
