New Release: Sunni Colòn – ‘The Els’ Flowers’ EP

Los Angeles singer/songwriter and producer Sunni Colòn has released his The Els’ Flowers EP and it’s sounding mighty right. The opening guitar strings on the sparse “Earth” track along with subtle, lo-fi, echoey vocals immediately set a tone analogous to Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange. The EP is strong front to back and the perfect mood music for a chill Friday evening.

New Remix: Frank Ocean – “Pink Matter” ft. Outkast

 

One of our favorite Frank Ocean tracks from Channel Orange gets the Outkast remix treatment. In addition to Andre 3000′s oft quoted verse on “Pink Matter,” Big Boi adds his own saucy contribution also on some tantalizing fast-rap steez. Hit play below and get caught up.

New Release: Frank Ocean – ‘Channel Orange’

 

Frank Ocean has been swirling in our heads and hearts something heavy since about 1AM this morning, when we saw sir Frank tweet the Tumblr link to his full album stream. Shortly thereafter, he made his TV debut on Jimmy Fallon and announced the one week early iTunes release of Channel Orange. You know we headed straight to iTunes and then took to the social networks to gush about his mystical songwriting prowess and stylistic brilliance.

Firstly, we’re thrilled about not having to manually click on “play” at Soundcloud eleventy-billion times to obsessively loop “Sweet Life.” And then there are the other glorious singles like “Thinkin Bout You” and “Pyramids” right at our fingertips along with a new assortment of Frank’s characteristically honest music. Aside from the singles to date, “Crack Rock” and “Pink Matter” are definitely our favorite new tracks, with “Lost,” “Monks,” and “Bad Religion” being other standouts. Naturally, each listen takes us a little deeper.

Below, view Frank’s performance of the heart wrenching “Bad Religion” – given its relevance to his recent personal disclosures, it was nothing short of teary eyes over here. Heavy. Stream the full album on Frank’s Tumblr page.
