Little Pain - "Marceline"
For whatever reason I've been deep in my feelings lately; my November rotation has included Future’s Monster tape, some of Makonnen’s more emotional deep cuts like "Rumor" and "On & Off," a sprinkling of Drake—you get the idea. Little Pain's "Marceline" is very much in the same vein with a sort of absurdist twist. Inspired by the character of the same name from Adventure Time, the track is an ode to the woman who keeps him going through thick and thin, and Pain's somewhat awkward crooning actually makes for an incredibly enjoyable listening experience. His forthcoming project L.I.T.T.L.E. has me excited for the first week of December to arrive.—Tim Larew
