So the Beastie Boys new record, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 has apparently leaked onto the interwebs. So in response, the three brooklynites have streamed the entire record on their Soundcloud page. Enjoy. Oh and it’s the dirty version because it was the clean version that leaked.

Following up last week’s introductory post on Odd Future, I wanted to highlight Frank Ocean. OK, that is an understatement. You have to know about Frank Ocean.

Frank Ocean is far and away one of the most talented musicians of recent note. His record Nostalgia, Ultra is a complex work of art that crosses all traditional boundaries.

Download Frank Ocean’s Nostalgia, Ultra Here

Known as Christopher “Lonny” Breux, but officially changed it to Christopher Frank Ocean last year was born in good ole New Orleans, LA. The 23 year old transplanted his life to Los Angeles around the same time as Hurricane Katrina and in the process took the music industry by storm. Terrible analogy I know, but his album Nostalgia, Ultra dropped a few months back to a wide range of praises. And by dropped, I mean he released it for free on the interwebs. Standing in the cloud of Odd Future fury is a unique place, but Mr. Ocean’s talents is what is setting the crooner in his own dimension. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, Frank is a singer and not a rapper.

He has had a whirlwind of attention lately. From releasing a picture while working with Beyonce on his twitter account, to writing for Justin Bieber and John Leged to the countless comparisons to R & B legend, R. Kelly. Whoa…

Here’s the highlight reel to Frank’s releases… So far, as there are going to be a great deal many more.

Swim Good is sooooooo infectious that it leaves you wanting to press your rewind button over and over over again even if

Novacane is the second cut off of Nostalgia, Ultra and solidified my praise for Ocean. The surreality that all men seem to want, “the model broad with the Hollywood smile,” leaves you salivating and wanting Ocean’s 2010 Coachella fun.

Pyrite (Fool’s Gold) is just Frank’s Swag and a guitar. Yes please.

Strawberry Swing is one the best songs ever I think. Ok. that’s a far fetched thing to say. Ocean takes edits and instrumentals of some great tunes like Coldplay’s sleeper here and reinterprets them for some brandnewness. If this doesn’t fully encapsulate the title of the album Nostalgia, Ultra, I am not sure what does…

Marion Bolognesi

I’ve seen Marion Bolognesi‘s paintings around the internet before, but have never gotten the chance to see the full gamut of her work. While stumbling around I found a link to her web portfolio and I’m just beside myself with awe for her talent.
