Frank Ocean stars in the hazy video for his addictive track, “Novacane,” featuring impressively minimal facial and mouth movement. Directed by none other than the amazing Nabil Elderkin, the simple video does without too many frills while still remaining visually interesting. Some may know Nabil from his work with Kanye West on a photo book for the famed ‘Glow in the Dark’ Tour.

Want more Frank? Def Jam will be re-releasing Frank’s popular mixtape as the Nostalgia, Ultra EP on July 26th.

The Philly-based, electro-inspired hip hop duo’s lead radio single of the same name samples MGMT and has been met with critical acclaim since Kanye West posted the video to his much-read blog. The four-track EP is a follow-up to the duo’s celebrated first mixtape, Swelly Express, and seven-song mini-mixtape, Air Swell. Their debut album The Swelly Life is coming August/September.
