after a highly anticipated wait frank ocean has done it again. i love this album because it takes you on a journey. he captures a mood and tells a story. it speaks to our basic human emotions, feeling sad, alone, self-absorbed, etc. while also keeping things mellow yet enlightening. i do like nostalgia/ultra and channel orange more, however, this album is definitely a nice progression. and it gets better with every listen! nights is my favorite track. similar to pyramid, it starts off as a solid song but then it changes tempo into this super rad amazing track. if you've been to my soulcycle class recently i love stretching to pink + white and seigfried. i also play this awesome remix of white ferrari that you need to check out right now! it makes me feel like im in the movie drive :) 

i feel like people have been sleeping on the zhu album! zhu maintains his chill sexy vibes and it's just perfect. i find it super easy to listen to from start to finish though the stronger tracks are mostly near the beginning. it's the perfect album to end the night with while sipping a nice glass of wine. the standout track for me is good life. the lyrics are powerful and the groove is smooth. i love how he's the cute little baby on his album art! how notorious of him ;)

now this album has been out for a while but i need to mention skin by flume! as soon as i put it on it gives me festival vibes. i imagine a crowd mesmerized by cool lights and dope beats. the beginning of the album feels a little more mainstream but i like that he takes some risks later on starting with wall fuck, oh my god, the production is wild with this one and i love it. my favorite must listen to tracks are you know which goes right into take a chance with little dragon (that angelic voice) and then followed by innocence with alunageorge (great three track stretch)! overall super solid album! hopefully that gives you enough tunes to bump for now. i'll be back with more soon
