Artist Lil Khaki brings a confident flow and a defiant, probing intellect to “By Myself” and “Stuck in Yesterday.” The former is an introspective tone poem where he raps over a lonesome, melancholy, atmospheric guitar strum. It’s a nice mood piece, though it never tries to boost its intensity. The latter song, spurred by moody piano chords, brings more dynamics to a similar formula and is spearheaded by a strong catchy flow (“Can’t get to tomorrow ‘cause you’re stuck in yesterday.”). Khaki leaves his comfort zone and proves how daring an artist he can be on the Kid Ocean-produced “Floating” where he brings a much more dramatic vocal profile on a track that is intense, arty, creepy and out-there.
