So many things running through my head right now. Yes, I just did a post about Frank when I myself champion variety. Yes, Channel Orange was scheduled for a later release, and yes, I have to learn many pointless things for my British Citizenship test (including that Welsh is most widely spoken in Wales. Who would have thought?). But just please….
Had to pry myself away from that unbelievable Wimbledon final yesterday in order to bring you this, so please feel special. Here’s a colourful summer tune that you can blast while chilling out and drinking Corona (my favorite).
World, let it be known that I love Frank Ocean. The singer has been in the limelight recently after a post on his Tumblr that appeared to tell of a summertime romance with another guy caused the world to label him as gay or bisexual. Fear not, Frank. In the words of Celine Dion, I will always love youuuuuuuuu…
With the others all on holiday celebrating the end of the school year, it’s up to me and Henry to hold down the blog fort. I thought it would be difficult to satisfy all of you, but then I actually remembered that we’re the coolest ones anyways, and so in a way it filters out all of the bad, leaving you with only the best. (Disclaimer: I’m not actually saying the others are terrible. Otherwise why would they be here? They’re all great. Except Michael. Just kidding. (Or am I?) I am).
Here’s a new track from Kanye with Pusha T. After winning a BET Award with Jay-Z (an award ceremony that had everything, including Jay-Z in direct competition with his missus, and Kanye getting interrupted during his speech in a Kanye-like way), Yeezy is on a high. He has every reason to be with awesome tracks like this one.
Ah, nothing like a night in the freezing cold English countryside to help you forget about your city problems. Having (not really) slept on the floor of a dusty old barn, the 2 hour car journey home needed music that would be enjoyable for bleary-eyed teenagers. Fortunately, Blackmill was there to save the day.
Recently, I have been missing this man’s music in my life. I absolutely loved his Ghost Notes EP. Hiatus has a knack for blending heart-wrenching melodies with softly profound backings that when combined form something truly incredible. I urge you to listen to his latest offering after the jump.
