Aside from being what you’re on right now, the Internet is Odd Future’s Syd and Matt Martians. You might remember their 2011 record, Purple Naked Ladies, but they’re already gearing up for another release, an EP called Feel Good, which, based on first taste “Give it Time,” is something a little different for these guys – or any members of Odd Future, outside resident slow-jam expert Frank Ocean. This track’s got an excellent, mixtape-closing, lounge-singer vibe, with Syd crooning like a latter-day Erykah Badu or Lauryn Hill over some unexpected jazzy tendrils of guitar and a sexy, shoving backbeat. Check it out.
