Humpday Spotlight! Even more appropriate because I’m still doing promo-work where we’re doing fun stuff in bars on Wednesdays, but that’s another story…
This week is kind of a two for one. The video I posted is a Frank Ocean (of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) song covered by former American Idol contestant Leah Labelle. I love this girl’s voice and can’t wait for her to put out an album. But in the meantime, please familiarize yourself with Frank Ocean.
If you haven’t heard of Odd Future yet, you probably don’t like west coast hip-hop. Or things that are so in your face that you either love or hate it. But anywho, Frank Ocean is the R&B slice of the Odd Future pie and his mixtape nostalgia, Ultra is absolutely delicious. I downloaded this mixtape a few weeks ago and I’ve had it on repeat since I heard the first track.
A few of my favorite tracks are We All Try, Swim Good, and lovecrimes but there honestly isn’t a single song that I dislike.
a) Odd Future is dope. b) love love love the energy they have in this performance on Jimmy Fallon. especially the last 60 seconds or so c) using a QR Code as cover art? fucking genius. *one tweak… make the site mobile friendly*
Enjoy! Because I’m totally counting this as part of my Humpday Spotlights. hehe.
