It was easy, when he first emerged, to feel cynical about Yung Lean off name alone: a perfectly grating encapsulation of a certain earlys mode of irony that reconstituted hollowed-out rap tropes into winky Tumblr art. The detail was funny in a sense—a man destined from birth to be a Cool Internet Rapper—and a bit symbolic too, a sign of something real behind the pose of it all. That premise, at least, seemed intriguing, even if the results usually made me feel jaded. And the moments on Stranger where he breaks away from rap are striking glimpses of his full potential, piercing through the detachment that once obscured real emotion. And the way Lean sings them, especially, reminds me of Swedish indie pop of the mids like the Tough Alliance , CEO , and jj : bands whose blithe, Balearic sounds masked something unsettling beneath the surface, and who often weaved American cultural touchstones into their loose strands of thought in ways that were sometimes irritatingly twee, but sometimes transcendent. Nevertheless, Lean presents well-crafted, transportive songs filled with clever, emo and pop-punk inspired bridges and outros that let the beat fade into nothingness.
