This morning, well afternoon. I awoke to text messages from Wexx saying “I just found a dope new artist!” I hopped off of my futon and signed online to find a pending iChat transfer about a OFWGKTA affiliate named Frank Ocean. Upon the first listen I was stuck! I sat through breakfast, lunch and bathroom breaks amazed by the sounds coming out of my speakers. Nothing wrong can be said about this 10 song disc with video game named skits. From his sampling of The Eagles “Hotel California” on “American Wedding”, to his un-intentional radio ready remake in “Nature Feels”. Stand out tracks “Novacane”, “Swim Good” and “Songs For Women,” this portrays what an emerging artist sounds like.
Hit the jump to listen to Frank Ocean’s brand new mixtape Nostalgia, ULTRA.
