As emotional breakdowns by white rappers go, ”Snowflakes,” by British newcomer Jack Allsopp, a.k.a. Just Jack, is a keeper: Built on Dre-style strings and Allsopp’s brooding rhymes, it’s a mesmerizing, wintry sulk of a record, and one of the year’s first great singles. The rest of The Outer Marker isn’t always as arresting – his middle-class soul-rap can be too clean-cut for its own good – but the drum-and-bass pop of ”Triple Tone Eyes” and the techno-folky ”Ain’t Too Sad” reveal a budding imagination at work.
