“Drunk At Nightswim” – Charles

You might not know about bedroom pop singer-songwriter Charles, but you should. The close friend of Ariel Pink just released her new album, That’s How Baby Learns which boasts a collection of intimate, lo-fi pop songs. The standout track is “Drunk At Nighswim.” Over tinny, ambient production, Charles almost whispers “I wanna go to the nightswim tonight / Won’t you just get in.” The song achieves a sense of distance and mystery while simultaneously creating a sense of enticement. You won’t be able to stop listening.
