Last year, this St. Louis-based rapper released an impressive debut EP titled a very sad happy birthday. Her rhymes are like a reel from your subconscious rolling out while chill music plays in the background.That certainly sounds like a compliment! As music is, at best, MTV's secondary function, we'll go ahead and add to that and say the track is a spacey, low-key affair that leans heavily on a jazzy horn-based production and pinkcaravan!'s relaxed, low-stakes delivery. "Chill" it most certainly is, but it is also a remarkably strong piece of artistry with a well-crafted and unique sound.
