somewhat buried in this month’s unrelenting avalanche of album releases was tinashe’s amethyst, a seven-track mixtape released as a thank you to fans for their support of last year’s aquarius.  tinashe has offered up an alarming volume of work already in her short career, tirelessly working with a multitude of producers to craft her own immediately distinctive brand of r&b.  amethyst is no different; over its seven tracks she dials up almost as many producers, including “wrong,” a particularly strong collaboration with ryan hemsworth.  tinashe’s voice is to autotune like a hand is to a well-worn driving glove, sliding in and out of the tool with complete ease while hemsworth dictates a disarmingly simple yet compelling beat underneath.  the song’s subject matter is certainly nothing new, but tinashe delivers “wrong” with a level of acidity that is almost unprecedented in pop music today.  check it out below.
