A month ago, the 2nd annual OFWGKTA Carnival was announced with the promise of the full lineup coming soon. Today, the lineup for this year’s Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All Carnival is now known. Along with headliners Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean, the festival will also feature scheduled performances from Taco, Mike G. The Internet, Trash Talk, MellowHigh, SchoolboyQ, Flying Lotus, Mac Miller, and Earl Sweatshirt. There may or may not be special guests, but go to the show if you can regardless of who or who doesn’t show up, and have a great time. The festivities will be held on November 9th at The Park at the L.A. Coliseum.

SOME STUFFS: Freddie Gibbs and Madlib making music history

 photo FreddieGibbs_old_zps64199fb3.jpg
Let’s get a few things cleared out of the way. Freddie Gibbs and Madlib are working together, maybe some of you are aware of this. They have a new EP coming out at the end of the month called Deeper (Madlib Invazion) with two new songs and two bonus beats. Check.

The two are hard at work on putting together a full length album, which they’re going to call Piñata, with a scheduled release date of February 4, 2014. This will most likely be one of the more anticipated albums of 2014, of any month and season, because of those who will also be on it: Scarface, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Casey Veggies, Mac Miller, Polyester The Saint, G-Wiz, Danny Brown, Ab-Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Meech (of Flatbush Zombies), and Raekwon.

Even with the album five months away, they’re touring right now, or at least Freddie Gibbs is, Madlib might be in Venezuela checking out some caves for records but either way, this is where (t)he(y) will be, doing some Rock The Bells dates with some Australasian dates in between:

September 8… San Bernadino, CA (San Manuel Amphitheater – Rock the Bells)
September 14… Mountain View, CA… (Shoreline Amphitheater – Rock the Bells)
September 18… Fitzroy, Australia (Laundry Bar)
September 19… Wellington, New Zealand (James Cabaret)
September 20… Auckland, New Zealand (The Studio)
September 21-22… Sydney, Australia (OutsideIn Festival)
September 28… Washington, D.C. (RFK Stadium Festival Grounds – Rock the Bells)
October 4… East Rutherford, NJ (Meadowlands Racetrack Grass Infields – Rock the Bells)

REVIEW: Earl Sweatshirt’s “Doris”

 photo EarlSweatshirt_cover_zpsefe26875.jpg Weeks before Earl Sweatshirt released Doris (Tan Cressida/Columbia), it was already being discussed, rated, critiqued and panned. When the album leaked, it made thousands of people want to hear it and continue the discussion, ratings, critiques and pans. I wanted to wait until after the first wave of reviews came in before I wanted to talk about it. Now we are here.

Doris is an album spoken from the mind of a young man who has something to say and feels a need to say it and be heard. He talks about smoking and getting high a bit, but he doesn’t celebrate it like some other rappers do. It’s just something that is there, but the core of his songs has to do with the days in the life of Earl, whether it’s getting a bit of sleazy quick loving from ladies or trying to not stay bored. With his stories, Earl will always make it sound enticing as if he’s getting away with something he’s not supposed to do, but he’ll sometimes touch on consequences or what he could/should be doing that may help him use his time a bit better. He does this in an occasional laid back style that brings back memories of the old L.A. flows, or even something close to what Andre 3000 is about, where a steady stream of consciousness seems like it could go on and on without ever getting bored from what he has to say.

Like with anything OFWGKTA does, Earl Sweatshirt is his own man that simply fits in with the freedom of him being him. Doris is another entry from a community of fellow rappers, producers, and singers that helped to form a new era of hip-hop in the same way Run-DMC did in 1984 and LL Cool J did in 1985, and that helps to make people deny a new era and frame of mind is in effect.

FREE MP3 DL: The Jet Age Of Tomorrow’s “The Jellyfish Mentality”

 photo JetAgeTJM_cover_zps83570e49.jpg
The people of the Odd Future collective are now trying to tell people about The Jellyfish Mentality, and what goes on in the mind when that mentality is embraced. In truth, it’s a new album by The Jet Age Of Tomorrow, a team consisting of Hal Williams and Matt Martians. The both of them bring together the likes of Mike G. Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, Syd The Kyd, SBTRKT, and Midtown Pat, Mac Miller, Speak, Casey Veggies, Kilo Kish, The Stepkids, Vince Staples, and Jesse Boykins III, and who knows who else was squeezed into this Mentality they speak of.

BEST OF 2012: My favorite music videos of the year

Let me say this off the top: this is not a list of every single music video that was made in 2012. Making a video is now the norm these days, and at times the amount of videos I have a chance in posting is overwhelming. What this is is a listing of my favorites of music videos I have seen and enjoyed. It could be due to the artist, it could be due to the song, it could be a mixture of both, plus some visuals that I found pleasing to my eyes and thus the mind. I did not have a specific video I felt was the absolute best, but I felt these stood out for whatever reason.

REVIEW: Frank Ocean’s “channel ORANGE”

Photobucket When I first heard singer Frank Ocean, I wasn’t immediately impressed. He could carry a note and I thought the songs he did within the Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All collective were decent, but not too spectacular. There was a bit more hype than substances in my opinion, and I thought okay, maybe one day his music will be able to match up with the hype. In other words, give me something that shows incredible everything so it will leave me with nothing more to way but “wow”. channel ORANGE (Def Jam) is an entry into a proper direction, and I have much to say.

For one, what I liked about Ocean’s work in the past is his laid back delivery. Sometimes he came off like a kid raised on hip-hop but loved to sing, or the stoner kid hipsters pushed to the side but others embraced because he was a storyteller, regardless of how strong or ridiculous his stories were. He didn’t speak or sing with any care about who people want him to be or how they want to hear him, he sings from the heart and the soul. Yet it was just that, that guy who loved soul music but did it with a slight hip-hop sensibility that partially came from the music he found himself in. Within the Odd Future camp, he did so primarily with the minimalism production style that I truly love. The minimalism may be partially due to the group not wanting to pay for samples, so by being sparse, they’re avoiding lawsuits. The end result is a very dry and mundane sound, but that sound cuts the crap and keeps listeners on what is being said. I love that, and anyone who loves that edge of Ocean’s work will love channel ORANGE, but the album is more than just OFWGKTA rehash. It’s much bigger.

What we are entering is Ocean’s world, mentality, and sensibility, and what you’re hear is incredibly musicality ranging from a few songs with a slight rock/pop edge, but not overly so. Then you may catch a bit of blues influences, which is surprising but more than welcome. His lyrics are simple, everyday tales that you might share with friends at the park, or with your significant other on your patio or park bench. It’s a casual conversation that comes off like one part personal diary, one part confessional, and that comes through as the mood of the album actually gets spiritual, at least musically. One thing some critics have said about the current state of R&B is that it lacks soul, which means it sounds nothing like the soul music from the 60′s, 70′s, and 80′s that people continue to cherish. By taking things back to church with the sound of a Hammond B-3 organ, chants, or gospel choirs, it seems like he realizes that as an artist, you should never limit yourself to how others want to limit you. Ocean is a free man looking at a soundscape that should also be free, and by bringing his music to a church setting, he essentially is saying “this is where it originated, this is where it should be, but it doesn’t have to stay here either. Let it roam, as I will.”

Ocean does this by singing out of the comfort zone fans have been accustomed to, reaching the kind of falsetto that Pharrell Williams often mocks in his phony Curtis Mayfield style, for some it may measure up to the words of D’Angelo and Maxwell. There are a few tracks where I was reminded of the vocal abilities of New Edition/Bell Biv DeVoe vocalist Ricky Bell, who is generally underrated in the shadow of Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant but someone who deserves a lot of accolades. The stories he tells are as convincing and as believable as the works of Erykah Badu, Res, and Amy Winehouse. He’s not saying he’s rich (yet), but it wouldn’t hurt if he had some extra to play with. What he has is compassion, but he also isn’t afraid to show a common human side that a lot of “R&B” tends to keep away from listeners because you’re supposed to leave that shit at home when you’re in the club. channel ORANGE isn’t a club album. Is Ocean trying to make a statement with his music, perhaps the equivalent of Common saying “but Imma take her back/hopin’ that the shit stop/cause who I’m talkin bout y’all is hip-hop”? In his case, he’s not so much redefining soul music by any means, but merely removing the dusty blanket to show what has been neglected. When you hear Andre 3000 do his verses and touches on how models may be beautiful but that a big woman is meant for cuddling, you know you can laugh, smile, and cry out “truth”. For Ocean, this is the first chapter of what will hopefully become an illustrious book of output for him. I turned from someone who felt he was limited by what he had done before, to someone who could prove himself to be one of this generation’s greatest artists. Without the hype, this is a great album and one of the best of 2012.

SOME STUFFS: Odd Future offer a slice of MellowHype

Photobucket
The Odd Future/OFWGKTA machine continues to spin at a wicked pace, and this time it’s because of members Hodgy Beats and Left Brain. The two released an album last year called Blackenedwhite,and now that Odd Future has caught the eyes and ears of many, a newly reworked and remastered version of the album will be released on July 12th by Fat Possum.

One major difference between this new version and the original is that it will not feature the track “Chordaroy”. It featured Earl Sweatshirt and the reason being given as to why they’re not using it is because, even though he is a member of the OFWGKTA collective, they did not receive permission from him to use his vocals. Whether that’s true or another means to shine light on this album, the real story is as of now unknown, but hey.
