If you though Verbs­, the staggering pop deconstruction offering from Au, was great when it dropped a few months back, just take a listen now. With time on its side—and too many repeat listens to fathom—the album shimmers in awe-inspiring ways it never did before. A record this textural, ambitious, and just downright visionary swells with newfound purpose as the calendar pages turn. Case in point: the closing number, "Sleep." On first listen the song seemed to sink in its own atmospheric drone, but now, after a few months to let it in burrow under my skin, it's a gorgeous and haunting farewell to an album that lacks flaws. If Verbs is this good now, it's hard to imagine how it will sound a few more months down the road. EAC
