Still No News Of Frank Ocean Since His FYF Cancelation?

By Alyson Camus | September 6, 2015

People were disappointed he wasn’t performing at the FYF fest, now they are turning angry with tweets like, ‘Remember when we thought frank ocean was gonna put out another album?’… ‘The greatest trick frank ocean ever pulled was convincing the world he exists’,… Ouch! But well deserved in a way.

The 2015 FYF Fest Lineup Is Here! And We’ve Got Vegan Morrissey

By Alyson Camus | May 6, 2015

They were announcing the FYF fest lineup this morning on KCRW, just when I was driving to work, and I have heard the big news which will probably please half of Los Angeles and beyond: Morrissey is headlining!! Good luck with that Sean Carlson! Have you been thinking about a plan B, because Morrissey may cancel at the last minute. But seriously, are you ready for a vegan FYF fest? Because he will demand it, right?

Frank Ocean's New Song "Memrise" Reviewed (Stream Here)

By Iman Lababedi | November 29, 2014

We’ve heard that Frank has been stymied by ongoing homophobia that has caused the hip hop community not to use one of the great sound guys in modern pop, and after claiming he was gonna quit the biz, Ocean changed his mind and offered up this new piece of music, a somewhat awesome piece of wobbly bass stuff along with a spoken word piece

Brian Wilson Has Recorded With Frank Ocean!

By Iman Lababedi | June 12, 2014

It seems to me, Brian Wilson’s decision to make a new album featuring the likes of Zooey Deschanel, Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean and Kacey Musgraves is a great one… and except for Zooey all these names excite. Especially Frank Ocean, the only name here with real production chops that might work well in tandem with Wilson.

Frank Ocean, The Clash and Diplo Team Up For 'Hero'

By Alyson Camus | March 18, 2014

‘The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed

Mick Jones, Paul Simonon,Frank Ocean & Diplo, "Hero" Reviewed

By Helen Bach | March 13, 2014

Mick looks like an over anxious dog hunched forward and rocking to Diplos every word and Paul still stoic and stiff shoots a periodic smile. Ocean seems to me he got the short end of the stick and he’s the one with most to offer in this tune.

It’s so fucking terrible. … It’s in his fucking genes. It’s not a fucking choice. The man came out like that, and you can’t just fucking disown this man’

Oh, she’s nine years old, that why Rod Stewart upped her to nineteen, though it does beg the question why did Berry make her a child instead of a teenager. The answer would probably be target demo but that makes no sense either! Maybe it is more like a significant portion of the audience but we don’t remember it that way – A+
