After going Way Too Far last October, Connecticut’s OnCue shortens the gap on his latest promo record, Closer. (We wouldn’t doubt that part of the inspiration behind the song’s title comes from how much closer the Jets are to the playoffs after releasing former QB Mark Sanchez). If the beat sounds familiar, it’s because ARW flips the Shlohmo-produced Brain by alt-R&B artist BANKS. Closer showcases OnCue’s knack for drawing you deep into a song that leaves you externally lost, but internally enlightened. Meditate on that, even though OnCue isn’t, as the buzzmaker preps his next album, Angry Young Man, for release some time later this calender year.
