Over the course of 13 songs, FIDLAR’s third album ​Almost Free touches on many of the tragedies  and irritations of modern life: existential dread, gentrification, the inescapable sway of the super-rich  and the self-involved, post-breakup telecommunication, performative wokeness, the loneliness of  sobriety or the lack thereof. But through sheer force of imagination and an unchecked joie de vivre, the L.A.-based band manages to turn feeling wrong into something glorious and essential. In the age  of joyless self-care, ​Almost Free makes a brilliant case for being less careful, for living without fear of  fucking up, and possibly embracing any incurred damage as a lucky symptom of being alive.
