(31) Days of Good//12.17.16

Frank shocked the world with two big releases, basically back to back. Both are fantastic and deserve repeated listens. Like “All We Got” from Coloring Book (Chance The Rapper), “Nikes” is a perfect lead off track. Almost too perfect. It’s really quite infectious. I’ve listened to this track on repeat probably the most this year. The production is impeccable. Play. Enjoy. Repeat.

♩ Frank Ocean – Nikes [from Blonde]



Fuzzy slow-fi ode to letting go, taking risks, and putting yourself out their.

♩ bed. – Billy Joel [from klickitat EP]



Clocking in at a mere 1:26, the song is bursting at the seems and the perfect teaser for the band’s new LP (Terrible Human Beings,  out 2/17).
