Should you believe the cover, the stretched-out, doom-bounce tracks that make up the self-titled EP from this Lousiana-based multimedia artist come straight from the sort of hell that Xavier Renegade Angel might dream up, were he the member of the heavenly host to betray his place in the sky. Which, honestly, is a decent way of understanding these songs; they’re funny, surreal, heavy depictions of living in the world as a queer, trans person—of being locked into a situation you never chose. "No Safe Space," a haunting ballad about the tenuousness of existence in a marginalized body, uses a sample from Mortal Kombat as a an exclamation point that’s both goofy and terrifying: "Finish her! Finish her!" With desperation, Edge Slayer tweaks the exclamation slightly in her own voice: "Finish me." — Colin Joyce @vice

'A choral collage that swarms and excavates the very site of femininity, “More Femme” mourns the compulsory performance of this gated gender style while still embracing parts of its practice. Across textured registers of bass and baritone, the New Orleans–based digital artist EDGESLAYER chants, “I can be more feminine,” and bears witness to transphobic assaults “at the store,” “on my way home,” and “when I’m buying blunts.” “More Femme” is a sonic incantation of a transfeminist politic, of balancing the survivalist requirement to be more femme in order to be graced by cisgender love and protection while still holding fast to a practice that is at the center of many transfeminine musicians’ work: “getting deep into their sensuality without boundaries,” as EDGESLAYER tells me." - Sessi Kuwabara Blanchard for pitchfork
