[staff spinz] Zodiac Feat. Jesse Boykins III, "Come"

From our latest feature in today's print edition of the Phoenix Staff Spinz highlights what we're playing these days in our newsroom...

ZODIAC Feat. Jesse Boykins III "Come" [Vase] -- Witch house season is upon us. In the many moons since Salem's inception, we've joked here at the Phoenix that the autumnal equinox seems to bring about a spike in occult nuances in the music we listen to. Well, it's not funny anymore, and this purple-and-black-tinged slow-burner from former Weeknd producer Jeremy Rose is evidence of just how serious it is. We may be reaching a bit by labeling this witch house -- when in all actuality it's probably a mere extension of the debaucherously detached R&B that Rose allegedly helped birth on House of Balloons -- but hey, it's October and almost Halloween and who really knows what the fuck witch house is anyways. Zodiac's self-titled EP is out now and it's worth your effort to track down. Outside the crawling R&B, there's the slo-mo trance of "138" and some screwed-up snap on "So Soon We Change." So you know, variety, or whatever.

In all sincerity, I wanted to make the below video my selection for Staff Spinz this week, but I figured that I would spare the design staff the trouble of having to format all of those ▲s on the page.
