"Warsaw" is the debut single from Parts of Speech, the third album from Minneapolis rapper and singer Dessa. Over a claustrophobic beat that cuts between moombahton esprit and Nine Inch Nails-sized industrial effects, Dessa embraces a narrative force and focus that pushes hard against the production, turning a tale of self-reliance into an anthem for it. After her surprising fork toward acoustic accompaniment on last year's Castor, The Twin, Dessa seems better prepared than ever to battle her machines. —Grayson Currin
