For the past several weeks, I’ve been listening to Frank Ocean’s new album, Orange Channel, on repeat. As far as I can tell, his latest video for Pyramids is the closest you’ll ever get to being on mushrooms, without actually being on mushrooms. Not that I know what it’s like, of course.
He’s the Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All affiliate that formerly wrote for Justin Bieber and is rumoured to be currently working with Nas. His Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape is incredible. It is a perfect correlation of euphoric r’n’b, lo-fi pop sensibility and the blunt OFWGKTA aesthetic.
