EDITORS’ NOTES

Marian Hill members Samantha Gongol and Jeremy Lloyd hit a home run with their 2016 breakthrough, “Down,” a moody piano number with an attention-grabbing beat. Here, the Philadelphia duo—known for an arty blend of jazz and R&B that fits curiously well on a dance floor—expand on their sound with terrifically strange, minimalist production and emotional songwriting. “Differently,” an ominous hip-hop cut about jealousy, gets the studio treatment from Boi-1da, a go-to producer for Drake. It’s bursting with nervous energy yet feels meticulously controlled, a tension carried throughout the album until “Go Quietly” lets loose.
