Faye Webster is completely herself on her 2019 album Atlanta Millionaires Club. The album is a work of duality, fusing alt-country and R&B. Webster is Atlanta born and raised, and has been writing her woozy, wicked tracks since 14. 21 now, and her dreamy, hazy album is gooey for a grey Sunday afternoon. Well, every afternoon at this point feels like a scary Sunday one, so you should throw this on your iso playlist. Alongside releasing this great steel-pedal built album, Webster is a well-known photographer on the Atlanta hip-hop scene.
My favourite track off of the sleepy album is “Kingston”. It’s lovestruck and dewy, caught up in the daze of humid summer love. “Right Side Of My Neck” is a close second, capturing the lingering tip-toeing scent of a new but uncertain lover. And finally, “Room Temperature”, is an ode to the introverted. In the current social climate this track is a lovely gawky reminder that sometimes it is just nice to be alone with the company of yourself.
Faye Webster is weird, witty and self-deprecating all in the same breath. Atlanta Millionaires Club is a fruit salad of lonesome heartbreak and delightful new romance, and is definitely worth the listen, especially with all this free time on your hands.
