In lingering glances, rushed entanglements, and delicate touches, Nick Hakim's debut laments over intimate memories through gentle love songs that spiral into soulful, psychedelic hymns. The booming "Bet She Looks Like You" and ethereal "Those Days" center the D.C. singer in the realm of sensual aficionados Curtis Mayfield and D'Angelo through bluesy injections and gospel incantations. Instrumentation veers toward the modern soul fusions of Anderson Paak, simmering guitar swaths and languid basslines coalescing in erratic sax bursts on "Miss Chew." Even so, Green Twins realizes a sound that's truly Hakim's own. (4pm, Tito's stage)
