FRANK OCEAN

It’s indicative of Frank Ocean’s rapidly rising star that sketchy-quality YouTube videos of a handful of new tracks he performed at a London show Friday night are the stuff of blog fervor. We’re waiting on better quality versions to make a final judgement, but “Disillusioned” and “Real Love” pretty effortlessly follow in the smooth R&B footsteps Ocean’s been gaining a lot of attention treading. He’s not a particularly interesting performer, but his catchy, serpentine beats and supple croon will certainly hold your attention.

Elsewhere in Ocean news, anonymous dub-courting genre buster SBTRKT put his spin on Ocean’s tender “Thinking About You” – it’s kind of a lazy remix, SBTRKT keeping the whole thing intact except for a couple house-ificating edits and echoes, but it’s worth a listen. Check it out before jumping over to listen to the new live cuts.
