Frank Ocean

Recommended Posts

Starting to hope Frank isn't announced for Glastonbury next year. You know that we'd just be spending the whole set waiting and he never shows up.

So... anyone listened through it yet?

not yet, but i'm about to (although unfortunately just the audio as i don't have Apple Music)

also http://pitchfork.com/news/67659-frank-oceans-new-album-boys-dont-cry-coming-this-weekend-report/

proper new album out this weekend according to Rolling Stone, apparently no longer called Boys Don't Cry

anybody with Apple Music tell me if the visual is worth checking out in some way or does the audio suffice? (not far in but sounding pretty good so far)

 

edit: oops thought this was New Music thread when of course it's the Frank thread

just finished my second listen. obviously not meant as a audio album but i enjoyed it a lot. some of it more cohesive/song-structured than other parts. the final track is so weird - a club banger with robotic vocals talking about the possibilities of Apple/Sony/electronic devices. so weird. so far removed from the rest of it that i'm wondering if somebody has just added their own track to the end of the album to try and plug their shit

bring on whatever Boys Don't Cry is now

Cheers for posting that @FloorFiller, work system is a bit pissy about streaming music but this one seems to work - my afternoon's listening sorted :)

I listened to the audio then watched the visual album and I don't think much was added except that I now have a decent understanding of building my very own spiral staircase.

But man, what a good album. And this is just seemingly offcuts and ideas that didn't fit on TAFKABDC crafted into an experimental sibling. Amnesiac today, Kid A this weekend. We eatin'.

took me a while to realise that somebody hadn't pitch shifted the Nikes video to avoid copyright

i like it. obviously the high pitch vocals for the first two thirds won't be for everybody, but i think it's a great song. hope that's not it for new music from him this weekend, mind

I didn't last the song, it sounds like an outro to an album. Just drop the full long player already!
